Hey guys, Just thought I'd do a little survey here. Normally, I like to hit the strings hard, over the bridge pick up, with the tips of my fingers rather than the pads. Although I do move my playing postion around a bit, and play with different parts of the finger, the apove postion is definately my "home base." I feel that I cut through better that way. Also, playing hard with a high action seems to make my bass respond more like an acoustic instrument, in that my volume is affected more by my fingers than by my bass's electronics. It sounds to me, more like the soft and loud dynamics are coming from the "same place". What do ya'll think. Indulge me, I'm a nosie bastard.
