: 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
Precisely my point!
Buena suerte and keep that bass up front in the mix,
