Technique Question

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by ninthwondernj, Aug 8, 2004.

  1. im right handed...and i am wondering when im pluckin gthe strings (on a precision bass) is it necessary to pluck the strings directly over each pickup? or does it matter where u pluck the string as long as its relatively near a pickup?

    First of all this should be in the TECHNIQUE forum. (i still dont see why people dont get this)

    But it doesnt matter where you pluck. You can pluck 3 inches from the pickup, it doesnt matter. Anywhere you want.

    I usually pluck over the pickup anyways because I use them and a thumb rest.
