Pick Bassists Shunned by Finger Bassists?
 
Is it just me or do the other finger style bassists here have less respect for bassist's who use picks? Personally I think a lot of them are wannabe guitarists.:mad:

:p ....Yes and no, I give him credit for being the "frontman" of Slayer at least..

Well using a pick on bass is frowned upon, here.

MetalPoldi 2003-05-29 15:44

I prfer finger-style, too.
It's harder so i like it more. :D
But some sounds you just can get with a pick.

Well not true actually it depends
Some rythmics figures are way easier to play with fingers than with a pick.
for example triplets.
This is for me at least

I don't know, I don't play guitar on a regular basis but personally I don't find it hard to tremolio pick..however it look me a while to get my three finger technique down..I'm currently slowly attemping four fingers.(Mainly because my pinky just flails and it looks kinda stupid. ha)


*Shakes fist at guitarists(My friend in peticular) who pick up a bass which is an "easy" instrument and attempts to pluck strings with one string...pathedic..*

har har..i play bass with pick only...and now, shun me :) i mentioned it in an earlier thread, i play maiden with pick, now that may sound heretic to all of u finger players, but well, its the way i learned playing and it's way more easy for me.
I think that almost 'crusade' tween finger n pick bassmen is useless, after all we are all bass player n have to stick together :beer:

Def 2003-05-31 13:26

well I use both techniques, I love to play the spider without pick :P its really fast, maybe just as fast as with a pick....

playing with a pick has a more brutal sound to it though, that's allways good....

I usually play without a pick though.

exactly. Plucking pulls the string upward. With a pick you can slam down on the strings pushing the string down, which gives a way more aggressive sound.

And the araya subject. I give him all the respect he should have, yeah, he plays with a pick, but look what else he does, yelling out fast lines, and having to remember fast bass lines. Not that easy.

BassBehemoth 2003-05-31 17:09

I shun you all! Wheres the guys with the fingers the ladies love?:eek: :cool:

MetalPoldi 2003-06-01 02:18

Yeah, three-fingers-technique on a clit is cool. :D :D :D

Def 2003-06-01 03:08

hehe I use the spider ;)

Tattered 2003-06-01 04:08

I still cant do the four fingered technique, ive pretty much mastered the triplet technique though, but my pinky is too small to clip the string. :(

Def 2003-06-01 04:13

aww, you must have a mini pinky?

I've got huge hands so that comes in handy..

Agreed :beer:

Damien-X 2003-06-08 22:08

heh I play bass with fingers, picks are too easy to play with......... I've tried playing with a pick before and honestly it's annoying........... playing with fingers you have more control and freedom I guess....
I play thrash, power, prog, death and black metal with fingers, although it is harder to get such speed with fingers as you do with picks....... I'd rather a fucking challenge! not an easy way out.
