: : It's best to learn everything you can in the long run, but I would start with fingerstyle. Both will get better with practice.
: : Which one you use depends entirely on the type of sound you want.
: :Steve says, starting to play bass with a pick, is like starting to play piano with your nose. Never ask a guitar player anything about bass as long as you live.


>>>> Hmmmm, well, just check out some of the fine pick work by
Chris Squire, Greg Lake, Roger Glover, Sir Paul, and
the legendary Carol Kaye....IMHO, learn to play BOTH
ways, with a pick OR fingers, it gives you many more
options, tone-wise...For a thorough explanation of
pick techniques, check out Carol's website at
www.carolkaye.com There's a real comprehensive
picking lesson there to check out...
