    Default Rx Tones' video got me thinking...

    Here's the link if you haven't caught it yet:

    While everyone may be checking out the guitarist, I
    was scoping the bassist. I own a P-bass and the
    bassist's looks like a P-bass, but
    then I noticed- he uses a pick.

    How about the rest of you: Pick, fingers, thumb or combo?

    I myself am a thumber. I find I can usually keep up with
    most riffs just using the thumb, and only occasionally
    need a pick for those super fast riffs.

    I'm curious as bassists, which do you use?
    I'm not thinking.

    I have played bass at times and mostly use a pick.
    Whether you think you can...or you can't...you're right!

    Some mistakes are just too much fun to only make once!!!

    I use 2 fingers when I play bass.
