Currently doing some pre-production with a cool producer. But he's all about the bass being played with a pick. I think for some of our more punchy rocky songs it does work well, and the mix sounds good. With some of the slower more ballady songs the fingers are better. Our bass player has never used a pick. And I don't know of too many bass players that do, and I've always looked down on bass players that used a pick! Am I being a snob, or does a pick really sound better in a mix?
