    man ... it isn't hard at all what Flea plays !!! With some practice you should be able to do that song with your fingers.

    you are correct he does use a pick for alot of the quicker songs, ppl have listed most of them.

    he def uses a pick of parrallel uni to keep it all in time plus for the tone, btw album was mostly fingers, with some pick.

    Actually if you look at it, most of the songs he uses a pick on are slower. Besides the obvious exceptions.

    Flea often pretends he is holding a pick and strums with his fingers.
