: I agree that you should keep your options open, but when using a pick, if the song sounds like it needs just one slap here, one tap there, some nice thumpy triplets, you don't have that option. That's the main reason I'm biased against picks. It just seems to close off more options than it opens.
: HOWEVER, I have been known to use a pick for the intro or bridge, and then just drop it. If there were a convienient way to switch between picking and fingerstyle, I'd be all for it.
Hey Man -
A nice way to switch over is to rest the pick in the bridge. my bass has this little slot that i have made a nice use for and you can transfer between the two pretty easy without cutting off the groove. all bridges are diff, so whatever. -chris
