I know most of you would think this is pretty strange but I always play my fretless with a pick. I've always played with a pick b/c I started out as a guitar player and I could always get more attack, muting control, and speed with a pick than I could with my fingers. I tried playing the fretless when I first got it with my fingers for a more smooth tone but I just couldn't get the speed and control I wanted with my fingers. I've already recorded a little jam thing with it and it sounds good to me but I'm just curious if anyone else plays fretless with a pick. I recently read an article on Joe Osborn and he is also a pick player. Anybody know if he ever used fretless for recording?
