I've been playing bass 4 about 2 years now and I was wondering if anyone could help me out with pick playing. I used 2 think that using a picks were just for guitarists, but recently I've been seeing more punk bassists using picks, and since me and my frend r trying 2 start a punk band, I want to learn 2 play with picks big problem with picks is that i cant play faster than an eighth note with a pick, and if I do i end up hitting the other strings and fucking up.
I would also like 2 know if picking is rilly the best 4 punk, if anyone plays punk with 2 fingers let me know if its been working out 4 u or if u think picks r better.
thanx 4 the help, Tom
