hi again, I recently posted about "strumming" a bass. perhaps I phrased my question wrong.
what I'm wondering is what technique is used to rapidly play notes with one's right hand going way past the strings and back again (as if strumming).
I see punk bass players do this all the time. but I can't figure it out (I am very new to bass).
I can't imagine that they lower their hand to the string at just the right moment as their hand passes by.
strumming is not what I meant because I am talking about just playing one-note at a time.
also, muting the strings you don't want to hear, but strumming all of them just sounds bad. so that can't be it either!
help me out if you can.
thanks in advance!
