I started playing systematically bass the last 2.5 yrs. In this context I developed a way to mutate E and A strings by using my plucking pinky finger (right hand) to the E string from downside while my thumb rested on A so to pluck D and G with index and middle finger . I sticked with this way of playing to eliminate sympathetic vibration as everyone had to deal I guess.
The question is that if this is an acceptable way to mutate or I just inherit a bad habit that I should put an effort to change?
I tried to mutate with thumb only by resting on A and touch E when play D and G but found extremely difficult to play, with disaster results. The way I’m playing now I manage to achieve a clean and accurate tone but I really wondering if this is an outcome of wrong playing method.
Appreciate all answers in advanced!
