hope someone will get laugh out of this somewhere. i've recently stopped using a plectrum to play bass opting for a fingerstyle instead. the thing that stuffs me up is when i chop my fingernails. i often forget and dock all the nails on my plucking hand so i kind loose a bit consistency in sound until the nails grow back! i have program myself to just sort trim them a bit instead. i've heard that some people use fingerpicks for bass but i think i'll just wait for my nails to grow back. might take the oppurtunity to strum an acoustic for the next few days!!!
