    Just wondering how many are out there, as it came to mind, that a Punk band, yes, a punk band, from Australia i've seen a few times, Slaps, Picks and uses fingers.. all really well too.

    I personally prefer pick playing, but it's interesting to see all three used throughout a set...

    What other artists are out there who do so?

    is it really punk, though?

    punk is what pop-rock bands call themselves as they dye their hair.

    Knowing how to get all the sounds and styles out of your instrument is called being accomplished on it. And when you can do them all equally well and know when to use each of them that's called virtuoso.

    Reminds me of the matched grip-traditional grip arguments with drummers. The answer of course is you should be able to play BOTH WAYS.

    With drumbs as with bass each way of playing has it's own avantages and disadvantages. You pick the one the does the most for the music.

    Do either of them ever play with a pick? I've seen both of them multiple times and never saw a pick come out.
