in the first several years of learning to play i use to use all five of my finger simultaneously to pluck the bass. i started out with 2 fingers at first then 3 then 4 then finally 5 and was able to play full songs with the technique but wasnt sure if the technique was efficient or practical, so i dropped the technique and now im back to 2 fingers (unless im playing triplets i use 3)was this a mistake? does more fingers necessarily mean a shared work load or would the technique just hold me back? to summarize what im asking does more fingers=better? I know james jamerson uses one finger but i feel although it worked for him, the technique itself was impractical if you had 2 fingers to share the work load. love jamerson, im not hating.
