Interesting ~ I'd only heard of the 1-2-4 finger method being used on acoustic basses. It seems to be the only safe way to go about it. Cool that it's helping out some electric-folk too.
The stuff you mentioned about relaxing is great too. It seems like a lot of people, even ones who realize their tension, don't relax enough when they play. Good posture is underrated, and often overlooked when people are trying to figure out why their hands/shoulders/etc are bothering them. There's a book by Madeline Bruser that talks about some of that kind of stuff called The Art of Practicing. Check it out ~ artofpracticing.com.
