I hate trying to cover up my cheese in school because the bimbo next to me dislikes the smell of pure love.

Who says you need a band? A bass can do just as much exciting shit as a guitar can.

You had to ask for it...At least the comment before was in a joking manner...


I prefer fingers but I desperately need to improve my picking....I'm pretty much helpless with one unless I'm really familiar with the song. I try to play with pick or fingers based on the original.

Why would you spend tens of thousands of dollars to learn about a language you already speak? It was over before it even started dude

Ya I'm fine with people playing with a pick. I just don't do it myself, partially (OK, mostly) because I'm TERRIBLE with a pick.

Can't we just agree that a good player will know both techniques and use what works for them? Tony from Static-X uses a pick for speed, and that's how he learned. Alex Webster from Cannibal Corpse uses fingers 'cause he likes the sound he gets from his amp.

I plan to teach my friend to use both whenever his left handed bass shows up...

+1 to Sonsie.

When you're on stage, usually finger playing seems to draw attention.

But seriously, I use both. Picking for fast stuff and br00talz metalz, fingers for the rest. I sometimes even switch mid-song multiple times.
