Hi, I have only been playing bass for about 3 months, I usually only play with a pick but just recently I wanted to play and I dont have a pick. Soo I decide to play finger style I anchored my thumb on the pickup when I played E and anchored it on E when I played anything else, anyway my question is as follows: How hard am I suppose to pluck? They way I was playing just a minute ago was my finger was just pushing the string up lightly and it sounded alright to me but I was wondering am I doing it wrong? The word pluck to me implies you kind of pull up on the string. Does anyone have any videos of some good fingerstyle players? BTW I really dig it, Its soooo much easier to change what string I am playing on then with the pick in my opinion.
