Does anybody else have a bassist they really appreciate who plucks with their thumb? I don't mean the guys that use their thumb to pluck as one tool in a rich toolbox of techniques, like Damian Erskine. I mean the guys for whom this is just how they play, like Armando Hernández of Los Dos Carnales. People who use the thumb plucking technique from the tug bar era, before Larry Graham and Louis Johnson repurposed that appendage. I think Armando also uses his fingers to pluck occasional high notes as well, using a sort of "fingerstyle guitar" technique. Edit: Actually his technique is more diverse than I initially thought. I hadn't paid much attention to his hands and saw a particular video where he favored his thumb. But anyway I'm interested if there's anybody you like who plucks with their thumb without necessarily being a "technical" player.
