Fingers

After playing guitar for 14 yrs or so, I obviously find the pick easier to perform with, especially when its straight tremelo picked guitar. However, I usually refuse to use the pick - somehow finger style feels right. The tone is punchier, I have more dynamic control, and I don't feel like a guitarist trying to play a bass... though that happens sometimes when I realize that I'm still a beginning bass player

I can thrash pretty well with my fingers, but my 3 finger technique needs work... so death metal is very tough on my speed for now.

I guess I do kinda shun pick style bass, even when it comes to myself using one as a crutch sometimes.
