I have a question. I've been told by other students in my teacher, other bass students in the Jazz program, and even the Jazz guitar instructor (who lowered my jury score for this), that my right hand technique is "wrong." When I do two finger pizz, I have my hand "sideways"...more like on an electric bass. When I use one finger, the fingers are more parallel to the strings, and I'm striking with the whole side of my finger, but the only way I can seem to get fast pizz runs is to use my fingertips, and have my hand more perpendicular to the strings. So, I thought this was "wrong," but I was just browsing back through Rufus Reid's "Evolving Bassist" and this is precisely how he shows the two finger technique. Additionally, the Jazz guitar teacher who marked off and said "right hand needs work" on the jury sheet, commented that I'm getting a really good sound given this hand position. So, should I tell my teachers "this is just the way I play," or should I try to get my fingers more parallel to the strings? The thing is, when they are like that, I can't seem to get them out of the way of each other to do faster stuff. Does that make sense? Any help would be appreciated.
