[NEWBIE] Holding the pick

I have been holding the pick with 3 fingers for my whole time playing (I am just a beginner though, only 4 months total) and I wanted to know if this is a bad thing? I have searched online and a lot of people recommend using only 2 fingers and that is really uncomfortable for me. Should I change this habit before it's too late?

EDIT: The most uncomfortable thing is the up-down strokes, my pick just starts rotating in my hand and eventually falls.

Songs for Violin and Bass

I recently switched from guitar to bass and my girlfrieds plays violin.

Are there any songs which are suitable for violin and bass? Preferable not too difficult songs as we are both not that advanced players.

[DISCUSSION] What was the last pedal you bought and what will be the next?

Last – OBNE Haunt Fuzz. I actually don't even have it yet, but it's on the way. I've never seen a pedal that interested me more than this one. It just sounds fantastic and it has a tone of different tones you can get out of it.

Next – TC Electronic Prophet Digital Delay. Only reason I don't have it yet is Guitar Center hasn't gotten them in. $50 for a solid digital delay with a soft switch is awesome.

Heavily Downtuning A Four-string Bass

I have a five-string where I'm at right now that I play in GEbAbDbGb tuning. A half step down on everything with the lower string down an extra half-step for a low G.

I'm gonna be back and forth between two places, and at the second place I have a four-string bass. No car so I'm gonna be busing and I don't want to have to lug my five-string with me and risk bringing it on the bus.

Do you think tuning the four-string bass down to GEbAbDb is feasible? Off the top of my head filing the nut, getting heavier strings, and adjusting the intonation might have to be done but is there anything else I should be worried about?

The only stuff I could find online was about people tuning their bass to BEAD, but this is a bit lower and I'd just like some opinions from anyone who has experience.

Thanks!
