I know hundreds of new players have asked the same question over and over again, but which is the best way to play, Finger or Pick?
Thing is, I've got pick nailed down perfect, and I can play pretty complicated basslines doing it(I just cracked 'All Around The World' by The Red Hot Chilli Peppers), but I cannot get the hang of finger style. I seem to pull the string instead of pluck them when using my fingers. I can play with my thumb, but that's bassically the same as a pick.
I get confused when I see Jason Newsted use a pick on all songs, but then Timmy C. from RATM only uses finger style. Help!
