Alright I just got my bass, and have played a total of like 2 hours. Ive learned a few song riffs and stuff. I know some people play with a pick and others play with fingers. Well ive been trying both. But when I play with "fingers" ive been using my thumb downward on the string, heh I think thats wrong. Am I supposed to use my index finger and strum upward? If so, do you know what will help me get used to that, because it feels really weird, and its hard playing like that. Also I havent been able to go fast with my finger or string. What would you reccomend that would help this.
