I've been a finger player since I started to learn to play bass 10 years ago (Geezer Butler influence) BUT the want to be a competant pick player as well has hit me from I don't know where. I'm not into the argument of which style is better all I know is that the time for me to learn to pick has come. That little peice of plastic feels so weird that I'm not even shure how to hold it. Any comments on leaning the basics through to the advanced, picking styles, exercises, what dose and dosn't work for YOU or anything to do with learning to pick will be greatley appreciated. I'm sorry if this thread annoyes anyone RE: repeation or anything but I've received alot of help on these forums from good people on the other side of the world from me and for that I thank you all. Peace!
