So this topic has been on my mind since 2003 when i started playin bass... fingers or pick!?!?

Im now playing 3 years and I still find at times when gig'n that im happier with a 2.0mm dunlop pick in my hand for songs like "The Who - My Generation" or "Guns N Roses - Sweet Child O'Mine" so as to ring out those octave notes before the solo with more ease, but songs such as "Cream - Sunshine Of Your Love" Or "Lynard Skynard - Freebird" have always been finger bass songs for me...

I just want other bass players opinions on...

All finger bass?
All pick bass?
Or mix the two of them together?

Personaly i like to mix it up, whether it be lack of ability or not. I have always played bass the way im more comfortable with regardless of other peoples opinions...

I think a mix of the two is best, in truth if you wanna be the best at anything than you have to be good at everything that comes with it. Which would mean you would have to play with a pick to get good at it
