Between Finger and Thumb


I’m gradually getting back to fingerstyle bass. At tonight’s worship and prayer meeting at St Clement’s I still had to leave my second finger out of it but first finger and thumb between them did a pretty good job. There was nothing too fast, so one finger or thumb plucking (and some  palm muting with that for a nice thuddy tone) worked well. At one point I even got a percussive thing going, raking back across muted strings with my thumb before picking out a couple of notes using a finger upstroke and a thumb downstroke.

All good… although I’m looking forward to having all my digits back in full working order.
