Fingers and Pick both good methods


Recommended Posts

Finger style player who went over to using a pick for a few months

Fingers give me  the sound as fuller with more depth to each note but I’m still liking using a pick for a lot of songs for the fast attack and punch clarity

Totally agree, its definitely worth working on and being proficient in both techniques.

Agreed. There is a strange notion that one way is how proper bass players play, and one is somehow sub-standard. Of course they're both just ways to make a string vibrate which provide different timbres and characteristics to the note.

 

Depending on the sound and feel I'm after, some shows are all plectrum, some all fingers, and for local covers gigs I'll always have a plec in my back pocket to grab when it will suit.
