I've been learning bass (playing right handed) for a little while now and I like to think I've been steadily improving, but my right hand has always been something of a weak point. I feel clumsy with it, sometimes missing the string when switching quickly and I have trouble properly muting. My teacher has been showing me the floating thumb but I just cant get the hang of it. I normally rest my thumb on the pickup or B string and have been having a really hard time playing otherwise. Picking or slapping just feels impossible, like trying to write properly with my offhand. That said, I'm worried that I might just be making excuses for myself to be lazy since I know its 100% doable. Any lefties have tips for improving right hand strumming/picking or muting?
