I have found the need to play bass with a pick a little more than I usually do. I am pretty much a finger style player, but I use a pick on a few cover songs with my band. Because I don't really use the pick that often, my accuracy and speed is not very good. The songs that I rehearse with the band are pretty tight... but everything else could use some improvement. I would like to add a good picking technique to my tool box. What I am doing now is using the pick in an up/down motion, but moving it in a circle... I am not sure where I picked this up from, but it seems like a short cut. I searched the forum a bit, but if someone knows a thread, or lesson, or something to practice please let me know. If I missed this information in a sticky or thread... my apologies.
