I have been learning "In The End" by Linkin Park. The bass line plays like 666666 6 6 444444 4 4, or something like that. Anyway, by finger playing I can't get fast enough string action (or can I?), but by using the pick I can come don on the string then back up on it. Also, it seems when finger playing it makes a longer stroke on the string and the string takes longer to settle. Which is better.
