We have heard the debate over pick/no pick, and such. Well then, let's see pix of those basses you proudly play, and reiterate your preference for string striking. Also, extra points if you have a track you play bass on! Me, I play only with my stubby fingers and my thumb. I end up doiung mostly funky/jazzy/techno stuff. Here's my entries into the frey: This is an F-Bass, from George Furlanetto in Hamilton, Ontario. This is the coolest thing to come out of Canada since Scott and YM! This is a 1970's Hayman bass from the UK. They are weird, and have a pencil thin neck. Great sounding rock-n-roll bass. Who's next?
