Emo stuff that is all quarter notes, and mabye an eighth. Oh yea, and they use picks too. in my mind if you use a pick ur not really playing a bass, ur just playing a guitar with big strings and a longer neck.

Not true. Matt Freeman plays all his solos with a pick and is a very good bass player. Steve Harris plays with a pick on occasion. Anesthesia was played with a pick.

I was thinking the same thing, but he got his point across.

Also, just because you're using a pick on a bass doesnt mean your playing a larger guitar. That would mean classifying a bass as basically a larger guitar played with fingers. Remember that Jason Newsted of Metallica used a pick and he did a fine job.

Btw if the new blood played metallica and maiden, it could be impressive, depending on how long he has been playing

kk, a few mixed replys (and some off topic ones :P).
Il stay with the teacher for the meantime i guess, i really dont know if i would be playing any better with a bass teacher, sometimes i feel like im wasting my time with this guy, sometimes i think its just me ^^. So yeah im still in limbo : /

(If i had a bass teacher i wouldnt need to ask the following question...)
Is it important to keep your thumb on the pickup? Ive gotten use to picking with my thumb in the air, tell me if this a bad habbit or not. or just point me to a thread if you can be bothered

Thnx

Well its good technique to have your thumb anchored on the pickup, or resting on the strings/end of the fretboard, but if your comfortable with the floating thumb technique and it doesnt restrict you to any fingerstyle stuff, then keep doing it, but its worth trying out of the pickup thumb rest.

I do both ie resing my thmb on the pickup and on the strings but on different occasional.......i mostly rest it on the pickup when i playing the B string while for the other stings i rest it ont he string above the one im playing on.this way i can mute that string at the same time..i dont think it really matters where u keep ur thumb......as long as ur comfortable

Cool man, it's definitely for the best....just make sure he doesn't play with a pick or he'll be no better than a guitar teacher! Cheers!
