Ever notice how some basses are much better suited for pick playing, while others are better suited for fingerstyle? My two main workhorse basses currently are a Fender Geddy Lee Signature Jazz and an EB MusicMan Stingray 4. I love the Stingray. It was my main bass for about 4 years. Its tone is still undeniably great, and its overall feel is superb. But, whenever I try to play it with a pick, it just doesn't do it for me. In fact, the tone is just too brash, even with EQ tweaking. And, overall it just seems more awkward to play with a pick. The Fender GL, on the other hand, is a STELLAR pick bass. I'm not that accomplished a pick player in the first place, but playing that bass you wouldn't know it. It just lends itself perfectly to playing with a pick. Actually, the GL is a very versatile bass. Fingerstyle is totally effortless on that one, too. I just find it interesting how certain instruments are better suited to one playing approach over another. Anyone else have similar experiences?
