I think I know what you mean... When I see bands live sometimes it looks like the bass player is going so crazy that itís not possible for him to be accurately playing just one note at a time. My only guess is that they are muting the rest of the strings and just because of the noise from the rest of the band you cant hear it or they are playing some kind of chord with 2 or 3 strings. Whatever it is, I dont think its a technique worth learning, you can play just as fast by picking one string at a time with your hand barely moving. I bet they dont play that way when they record something ;)
