hmm so i play bass, but i dont usually play like most people do and i dunno if i should learn to..i kinda pluck near the center of the body rather than all the way to the right side..umm yeah if you understand what i mean can you answer. hmm i guess i kinda pluck more like where you would on a guitar
Arrghh

ok if you pick in the middle you get a normal sound, if you pick over the fretboard you will get a slapping sound (not like pop and slap but like your actually slapping the wood) and if you play right next to the bridge you will get kinda a steched distressed sound (sry if that sounds weird i havent actually figured out how to describe that yet)

twangy sound could come from alot of things (action, the strings you use, the amp you use) bring it in to a local guitar shop and let them mess with it, they can tell you better since they will actually be able to play the bass
