: Check this out fingerstyle bassers, I have a question for all of you..

: Do you think raking your fingers (when you're crossing strings), coming say, from the G string to the A string is a bad idea?? What if its just plain easier to use just one finger to hit the notes rather than awkwardly alternating???? Thoughts???

Hi, Brock

It's generally a good idea, unless you're alternating the two strings. If you listen to James Jamerson on any of the old
Motown songs, you'll hear he was really a master of this technique.

Good Luck,
