: 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!


Fingerstyle, fingerstyle, fingerstyle.
And let's all say it together
FINGERSTYLE!!!
Good.

Any kind of music that needs a pick sound is so easy to play you don't need to practise it. If you want to play the bass -> fingerstyle
If you just want to hang out with band guys then you can play with a pick.
