Well I don't know, I do everything wrong. I sometimes do not alternate picking fingers, sometimes I use three two, no order, just whatever. I play messy sometimes, slap like a wacko, etc... But I have always got the same response, "You know how to burn up that bass but damn you would piss off an instructor!!!" I just do it how i feel. if its wrong oh well, it sounds good to me. does anyone else out there play out of wack like me!?!?!??? i don't know - I've always did it my own way and have been looked at as an idiot (using a single index finger to play 16th notes) but like i said, if it aint broke don't fix it. oh yeah, i heard of garry willis and all but someone told me he also doesn't follow many rules, is this right?
