I am a brand new bass player, as of about 2 weeks ago.
I already know how to play guitar and drums, I am adding bass so that I can make recordings on my own.
I need assistance with what I can only imagine is called "strumming" the bass.
I see punk bass players do it all the time. where their hand (using a pick of course) is going way past the strings and back again repeatedly.
now, I know how to do this on guitar and play certain notes but not others by muting those other strings.
but when I try it on my bass, I get this disgusting sound out of the muted strings.
so how does one rapidly strum a bass???
please email me with the answer, in case I don't check back here soon!
thanks in advance!!
