  1. Playing with a pick first an foremost gives you an unique very specific snappy emphasis on the attack, that is the main difference tonally from finger picking. Be aware though that there is a big difference in sound depending on the gauge, flexibility and material of the pick, which will all have an influence both on fell and tone of a given pick, and choosing the right pick is very much entirely a matter of personal preferences. As an example picks made of Nylon will produce a warmer tone, mainly the attack, and be more flexible relatively to thickness compared to Tortex picks, which in comparison will produce a brighter tone, more clicky sort of attack, and be less flexible relatively to thickness. . Many prefer a relatively thick inflexible pick for bass, like 1mm and above, some even 3mm totally inflexible picks made of stone, but then again for example Bobby Vega prefers the .73mm Dunlop Tortex pick, and personally I prefer mine even more flexible, namely the .60mm Dunlop Tortex pick. Regarding overall playabillity, once you've mastered both finger picking and playing with a pick, and have found just the right pick for you that makes you play optimally and give you the tone that you prefer, you will find that some stuff will lend it self to, sound better and be easier to play with, a pick, other stuff more to finger style playing.
  2. T-Rex Quint Machine! Quite affordable, tracks great, really low latency, does both 1 octave up and a 5th up, sounds good (better for this sort of thing than any of the EHX POGs if you ask me, not quite as synth/organ like, a bit more natural sounding).
  3. The music that offends me most is Top 40 pop. It is a sacrilege perversion of the most sacred and advanced form of communication we humans are capable of. Hell, it's even worse than that, it is legitimate capitalist and fascist brainwash.
  4. Which reminds me, I don't be believe D'Addario one bit when it says "String Tension Pro under construction", when you try to access their former great online string tension calculator, it's been like that for years, if it was truly under construction it had been done and up and available years ago, Something tells me they don't have any intentions of ever fixing it and making it available again. I refuse to believe it is that much of rocket science project that it couldn't be done in a matter of at least a couple of month at max, if just they actually had someone working on it. Would have been more accurate if the old D'Addario String Tension Pro site said "We don't care a flying hoot about your stupid string tension *lol*", instead of lying about doing something to get the string tension calculator up and running again.
  5. The absolutely phenomenal "Sea Song" by Robert Wyatt, from his 1974 solo album "Rock Bottom" : You look different every time you come From the foam-crested brine Your skin shining softly in the moonlight Partly fish, partly porpoise, Partly baby sperm whale Am I yours? Are you mine to play with? Joking apart - when you're drunk you're terrific When you're drunk I like you mostly Late at night you're quite alright But I can't understand the different you in the morning When it's time to play At being human for a while, Please smile! You'll be different in the spring, I know You're a seasonal beast Like the starfish that drift in with the tide So until your blood runs to meet the next full moon You're madness fits in nicely with my own Your lunacy fits neatly with my own, My very own We're not alone
  6. How does that even make sense, why would it? As stated above racism and xenophobic doesn't mean the same thing at all, and I don't see how you came to the conclusion that they do, that is unless you don't know what xenophobic actually means. But even if they did there are numerous examples in the English language of several different words meaning more or less the same, with more delicate nuances in difference.
  7. As I wrote in my previous comment to a reply stating something similar : Neither are black people, Chinese or American Indians. There is in fact only one human race. Racism is a term that stems from back when people wrongfully thought that several different human races actually existed. That doesn't however mean that racism doesn't exist. Today the term racism is defined by prejudices and discrimination based on ethnicity/nationality. And being American is an ethnicity/nationality. Worrying that so many people here are being ignorant of that fact. I guess that what can be concluded from this is that British people are dim (as if that had not already been proven by stuff I can not mention without going against the forum code of conduct).
  8. This got to be my favorite doom metal song : Also I play bass in a bass and drums stoner/doom rock duo.

  10. I don't like Muff type fuzzes in general for bass. They sound great for guitar, but for bass in my opinion they always end up sounding like a muddy unarticulated and undefined mess for bass, ragardless of what variation we are talking about, though some are worse than others. The Orange Fur Coat or Boss FZ-2 Hyper Fuzz/Behringer SF300 Super Fuzz is where it is at as far as goes bass fuzz, as far as I am concerned.
