I play the bass in a metal band, so I usually need a pick to get both a more fitting sound and reach the right speed. But I cannot find the right technique to use it and I don't have much precision and control of the instrument. Also, palm-muting looks like unfeasible for me at the moment, and I should use it sometimes.
My question is: which is the best way to use a pick on a bass (position of the hand, angle of the arm, distance from pick-ups)? Can someone point me in the right direction or suggest some useful source?
