: Hey there,
: I agree with Pat H. on this one. It really depends of what the music calls for, and there is no "right" or "wrong" technique as far as I'm concerned.
: Buena suerte and keep that bass up front in the mix,

i will have to disagree w/ both of you. i believe Sir Horace Panter said it best, "picks are for guitar players or your nose." if you want to have a more "cutting" sound, try boosting the treble and attacking the strings near the bridge. the range of different sounds one can get w/ different right hand techniques is almost limitless.
