I have been playing guitar since the Beatles first appeared on Ed Sullivan and recently I decided to get serious about playing bass. I bought a Beatle Bass and a small amp along with a few instruction books. I have a question that is not addressed in any of my books and I can't find an answer with Google so I will ask the experts here. I am not sure where I should be placing my right hand thumb (I play right handed). It feels most comfortable if I rest it on the top of the bridge pickup right above the E string. I then use my index and middle finger for plucking the notes. However I have been watching concert videos and it seems like every bass player is resting their thumb on the E string. I try it that way and it doesn't feel right to me. Should I force myself to change or should I go with the flow?
