What is your view on picking? I'm just transfering over from guitar so it's basically all i know. i have used my fingers in playing but it's different on a guitar than a bass (i know thats soooo obvious duh to me.) i have friends that play bass. many frown on picking, yet when watching a live show of the band, "YES," the bass player (a bassist i and all my friends highly admire) was using a pick. i just want to know what your view on picking is. is it a frowned upon thing? something that is a habbit not to get into in playing bass? or an as situation requires in song play? if anyone wants to know the song the Yes bassit was playing, i'm sorry, but i don't remember. i just remember him picking and it wasn't a thumb pick he was using from what i saw. i could be wrong though. i forgot to add this earlier: if you guys pick what kind of pick do you guys preffer?
