I'm so sick of bassist argueing over which is the right way to play. I'm sick of being harrassed for using a pick, i'm not kidding or over exagerating. You want to know how to play the right way? WITH PASSION! Who cares if you play with fingers or a pick?
If some old man tries to tell you that you don't play the right way, flip him off. One time a dealer gave me a funny look when i asked for a pick when i went to buy a bass. "What do you need a pick for? You play bass." I walked right out of the store. How dare he try to make me feel small just cause i don't play with my fingers.
It may seem like i'm making a huge deal out of this, but as a beginer, i felt like less of a bassist cause everyone said i needed to play with my fingers. TO ALL YOUNG BASSISTS: Ignore those who try to tell you how to play, make your own style, and play with everything you've got. thank you
