im new at bass and i was wondering, which is the best way to play the bass and get better sound
Dude, it doesn't matter. It just depends on what you like best, or what kind of music you play. If you wanted to play punk rock then your best bet would be a pick, but for metal or jazz or something, your fingers would do the best job.
And welcome to TB.
it depends on the kind of stuff you want to do, if you got a pick in you hand, you'll be more limited.
Welcome to TB
The best way I have found is to play and keep playing- the more you play the more your tone will develop
Listening to music and knowing what you're aiming for helps.
Not it if you can palm your pick you're not!
Welcome to Talkbass!
How many times have we all reached the consensus that it is a matter of personal style even though we all still agree that its usually best to know how to do both so you can apply the different techniques in different situations?
although i hate the pick style i'm not gonna denouce it but it is limiting and unless u want that kinda poppy twangy tasteless sound, like fer punk, don't use a pick, they're also handy when playing chords, but that's kinda ridiculous on the bass, and developing a hand strum technique would be better cuz the pick limits what u can do outside of or inbetween the chords
All I can do is laugh at this, sorry.
