For fast Punk songs, I use a pick, just like the original bassist. But there's this scratching /scraping sound when I play. Does it have to do with the way I'm holding the bass (while standing). because its fine when I'm playing while sitting.

Thanks!

You could try using a rubber pick or a felt pick. They work pretty well, though the felt picks don't last very long.
