Good news! I'm included in this group that's now, er, off the hook


Recommended Posts

Sometimes I use a pick on my fretless bass, for a harder attack and to fake the sound of a fretted bass, when I don't want to change basses.  I can always change back at the literal drop of a pick.

Interestingly, I cannot sing while playing bass with fingers, but I can sing while playing a bass with a pick.

That is exactly why I play bass with a pick! I spent so many years playing guitar with a pick and singing I can’t do both on a bass without one! If I’m not singing fingers work great... conditioning or something like that!!

Same here.  The hardest bit for me is playing bass (in any manner) and singing high harmonies.  Nothing but rote  muscle memory will get it done.
