i've been having some trouble at playing at a fast pace and keeping rhythm. i don't know whether this just comes with becoming an inexperienced bassist (been playin for about 7 months) and maybe i'll pick it up the more i practise. i play with my fingers and was wondering if this is the fastest and easiest way of playing bass or should i use a plec. oh yeah if your wondering why i want to play fast in the first place it's generally cos when playing punk riffs (which are usually pretty fast, i think) i mess up on them sometimes, and some i find too fast. well, write back with any suggestions.
