Funny, I gave up looking for him after 50 posts/3 pages! Saltines.
Bass Players that became famous despite using a pick...
Dean Paul Martin (RIP)
Johnny Allen Hendrix (RIP)
There aren't too many that play or listen to Jazz and Fusion nowadays.
In fact, my comment was intended as an endearing jibe, because I quite value our little Bass family on here in all it's forms.
You speak truth that the Jazz/ Fusion gigs have become uncommon and difficult to promote. It is frustrating. And, I have become somewhat of a return rocker myself these days, because cover gigs do still exist.
OTOH, AJ was also a somewhat prominent figure in the pop studios. Here's a clip just to jog the memories. While we are losing our Jazz gigs, I also worry that we are starting to become unaware of the legacy - Blues and the great studio cats. Anyhow, enjoy!
I have never had a sound guy tell me not to use a pick. They can adjust their sound throught he board and rack.
I like a pick. Helps me with speed and control. The only one that matters is Lemmy and he used a pick. He called himself a guitarist who played bass. Love it.
I prefer a pick, just like the tone it gets me, the punch. But i enjoy playing with fingers, i just find I like the way I sound with a pick on most tunes. I've been asked to go back to a pick by one band i've played in..... and i promise i'm not hopeless with my fingers!!! (Because that would be a legit reason too)
