I am new to this forum, so please bear with me if this subject has been discussed a lot before. My search did not help me find a thread about this. I am bass player for 20 years and I play in a rock/funk cover band but also with a rock oriented original singer/songwriter. I've come to realize that during the last few years my plucking touch must have gotten harder and harder. I also have been using a pick (because of its precise sound and attack) more and more during the last 3-4 years. Now, even my finger plucking has become harder and harder to the point where a decent string setup is very difficult (and I am using Sadowsky basses!!!) How can I go back to a more medium/light touch in order to get a lower setup? Can anyone direct into the right direction? Exercices? Mind tricks?
