Hey guys. I got into a crazy chain of youtube videos. I started on 6 string bass Dream Theater cover videos and somehow ended up watching dueling banjos just by clicking the recommended videos on the right. It got me thinking about the finger picks that banjo players use. The ones that slide onto your fingers like rings. I was wondering if anyone has heard of a bass player using these finger picks. I did a search but came up with your standard "pick vs fingers" online warfare. I think that fast finger picking style would sound really interesting on a bass. I try to avoid those pick vs fingers arguments, but these banjo finger picks seem like a good middle ground. One of the main argument i seem to see from the fingerstyle crowd is it's easier to transission to slap. I was thinking maybe a specially designed thumb pick could give you the ability to get that very distinct slap like Mark King or Wojtek Pilichowski. I don't know the name, but I always see those guys wearing some thumb cover to achieve a specific slap sound. With this special thumb pick and finger picks you could create a bass sound with a lot of attack (I think thats the right term) Anyone happen to have any links or names of musicians that do this? I'm sure someones tried it at least. Maybe it didn't work out, and that's why I've never seen it. It could be a horrible idea. I like a lot of "technical" music and I think you could get to a whole new level if this was implemented how I'm picturing it in my head.
