Hello fellow bassic beaches,
Just started the course a week ago and had a question. What do people do with their ring and pinky fingers on their plucking hand? I’ve found myself hooking either/both of these fingers under the lower strings when I’m not playing them, which almost certainly can’t be a good habit.
To get out of this habit, I’ve been trying to consciously force these two fingers into my palm which helps with the hooking habit. However, when I watch Josh’s videos/other people playing, I notice them usually keeping these two fingers straight. Is this to mute strings you’re not playing or are they just hanging out?
Please let me know your thoughts!
