lol jeez keep it on topic, like oh em gee.:sport-smiley-002:Bongo5hh said:I've tried to play with a pick but it throws my time out in a big way. I've heard many players tell me they use a pick when they need really tight notes. Since I can't play with a pick (and I really have tired) I spend a lot of time getting my fingers to produce tight notes.
An exercise that has helped me is to really listen to each of the strikes of the fingers on your right hand. Make them sound exactly the same. This will lead to a very controlled sound. It's helped me greatly.
Of course that's not really the topic... but it might be of use to someone anyway.
yeah guitarists generally do use a pickzao_89 said:I dont really play bass, but when I do, I always use a pick. I cant play notes fast enough with my fingers, so alternate picking helps.
