So I'm at my weekly lesson getting educated and the such. My right hand has been hurting of late so I had been using a pick more often. I told my teacher and showed him what I had been doing. He wasn't looking at first and said" That sound came from a pick?" in a good way. He told me that he was used to people having such a clicky sound playing bass with a pick that he encourages using fingers(which we have for two years). I did what felt good and got a compliment from a very good player...a good day all around.
