Just started playing bass. I've been playing guitar for six months and I love it too, but I also wanted to get into bass so I picked one up. I feel like I have an edge on beginning bassists because I've practiced a bit of finger style guitar.

However, I feel like the way I'm almost plucking the strings is sort of not what I'm supposed to do. I do use all of my fingers, but I feel like I can't get good speed up. Maybe I just need more practice, but I'm wondering if anyone can describe in depth or link to something that can explain the exact motions of fingers on strings. THanks in advance.
Gear:

Agile AL-2000
Vox ad30vt
Orange 20b bass amp
SX SPJ bass
crappy jasmine branded takamine acoustic guitar

dont 'pluck' the strings try more of a stroke (lol). if u actually pluck the strings you will never get very fast. You may have the right style but you need more practice.
It's true that practice makes perfect.
