Hello, I am pretty much a newbie at bass, and recently I seem to be developing this method of playing where if I want to move up or down in pitch, I just go up or down either one half or whole step and one string. This causes my fretting hand to be moving in a diagonal direction at all times. It seems to sound pretty good, but I'm not sure why. Is this valid or am I just goofing off? Thanks for answering my dumb question.
