I recently had a lesson with a bass tutor and was told that my whole right hand technique was "wrong". My previous teacher lectures jazz bass at my uni and is very accomplished.. now he told me my technique was fine.. what do i do?? my right hand technique is as follows: (Jazz bass) my thumb rests on the bridge pickup when using the e and sometimes a string... my thumb slightly moves down to rest on top of the e string and against the pickup whilst using the d and g strings.... I was told that the "correct way" is floating thumb... also... I dont STRICTLY alternate between my index and middle finger...this is only on strange or syncopated rhythms... straight 8ths quarters whatever im alternating... was told i should ALWAYS be alternating... HELP!
