I use my fingers all of the time when playing regularly.(Played with pick once on a recording) I don't like the sound of a pick on the bass really. At least I haven't come cross a tune when I do. However, I know how to play with a pick just becous I wanted to learn how so I got it in my "backpack" so to speak. :)

So, it's simple really. If you want to learn, or like the sound of a pick, use it. If not, don't use it. Go with what sounds good to you, and not what people tell you (unless in a recording situation, since then it's whoever mixes that is in charge of the sound)



: I;m 15 and have been playing bass fer about 8 years now, and i've always played with my fingers, always will. but i was just looking to see what everyone else uses and why they use it.
