: : Right on DM. As a musician that plays bass and guitar I have to say that the pick is just as hard to master as the finger style. These are two totally diferent styles that you can't compare as far as degree of dificulty. Yes it is true that bass players that use finger style get more props but I believe this is because of the stereotypes that surround the pick. Alot of people concider bass players that use picks as people that don't have the patience to learn guitar. This is bull. The main thing that makes the bass sound good or bad is the mind. If you have a good imagination it doesen't matter if you use a pick, your fingers, or your penis. Style is about imagination not stereotypes.
: Many pro players have said that a big problem is that people imagine their sound to be different that it really is so don't imagine the sound but listen to it. The sound that comes from playing with your penis isn't that good. My guitar player tried it ones and according to him Bob 'Skippy' Blechinger wasn't so far from the truth.
Not that my insight came from first-hand (or other appendage) experience, you understand... ;-)
