im confused does shavo from soad use a pick or fingers?
i've seen him using both actually: fingers in the "Toxicity" video, pick in everything before that...
He always uses a pick live, from what I've seen. Fingers only in videos. I doubt he uses his fingers because 1) his technique is TERRIBLE, and 2) his tone sounds like it's played with a pick.
I agree with Angus.. I'm pretty sure he always uses a pick, telling from pictures I've seen and from what I've heard on the songs.
he uses the wafer thin (i mean reeeeally thin) gibson ones. i caught one at a gig!
i stand corrected...
doesnt seem too terrible from where im standing, you know, with him being in a world famous and influential rock band and all.
Listen to the intro on "PSYCHO" (Toxicity), you can hear very well he´s using a pick....... cool tone though.
i saw a picture in a blender magazine of them live and he wasn't using a pick. so i dunno
Being famous is hardly a measure of quality. Or do you like the Back Street Boys, too?
okok remove famous and replace with another "influential".
Sid Vicious was famous, does that mean he had good technique?
And Fieldy influences more beginning bass players than Shavo. Which means he has better technique, right?
from what i see here i think its a pick
maybe he dropped it...
sorry i know i'm a loser
i'll go home now
Seems to be good for him.
Is there a high rule on good technique or what?
No, but there are accepted standards that we judge good technique.
so lemme get this straight.
The systematic procedure by which a complex or scientific task is accomplished.
In other words, the method a person uses to accomplish a task, not the end result of the task itself.
Thus if someones technique is bad doesnt mean their bassin' stinks. Thats what i was trying to get at.
Im sure quentin berrys technique stinks, but i think alot of us would agree his licks are really good. Kinda proving not to knock summat until youve tried it.
sorry for any missunderstandin'.
When they were live on Conan O'Brien he ditched his pick when they got to the guitar solo... didn't sound that awful.
and he was in a influentialrock band, so he has to have super fantabulous technique.
