My thumb stays on the side of the bass. I don't hook onto anything.

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?
Stupid question, but is there any practical reason to include pickup covers?

^They alledgedly help sustain a bit. And if you want an old school playing dynamic they would be helpful.
I personally would not use them, its all a matter of preference and style (as are most things).
I don't know that I'll actually use them, it was mainly curiosity that made me ask. That and the fact that they do look pretty sweet.
