: Like, with a plectrum (sp?), not choosing them.
: What do you all think?
: You can get a desired sound out of it, and play faster, but it closes off so many options (slap, tap, thump, various little tricks), and makes it more impersonal, you know?
: I don't like it.

Well; it's very relative; with a pick you can't do things such as slap and/or thumb and it sounds much more metallic than if you play with your fingers, but there are bass playing styles that you can only do if you use a pick. Flamenco bass style is a good example for this (and believe me ; I don't know how to do it but it is annoying!!!).
Anyway; I preffer finger style because sounds much more personal but it's only my oppinion...
