This is allways been something I've heard from bass players my age when I was a kid, usually snobby heavy metal/hard rock guys my age(I love both now), that using a pick was bad or beneath them. They were allways like " the tone is better/warmer with fingers "and I would think, " then why do you play with roundwound strings?" or "it is too limiting." I certainly love alot of music where the bass player uses his fingers, but for some songs, a pick definitely suits the songs. For those of you who feel the same way, what are some picked bass songs that you enjoy? Also, what about the songs do you feel are served well by being played with a pick?
