This one may have popped up elsewhere before, but what are the advantages and disadvantages of using two versus three or more fingers when plucking? I had a bass instructor who basically tried to talk me out of bothering with three fingers awhile ago. (I was trying to introduce my ring finger into the mix, feeling pretty comfortable with two-finger technique at that point.) Should I have listened to him? His main argument was that relatively few people in the history of our instument have ever been able to effectively use a third or fourth finger. People I've talked to about this before have either found the statement to be quite wise or quite moronic. What do y'all think?
