    ... the string tends to move more up and down rather than side to side, is this normal?
     
  2. Depends on your style. If you pull directly across the strings you'll probably hear a punchier attack. By pulling more into the body, which I'm assuming you're doing if the strings are moving like that you'll normally get a smoother rounder tone. So it just depends what sound you want :)

    well, my style is smooth, round, but crisp, so should this be good?

    well, not really crisp, but rather defined, so, is this good?
     
  5. If it sounds good to you, then it's good.
