    I am a guitarist primarily, but I play bass and drums as well. My main bass is a Fender Jazz that I love. I mainly play funk style bass.

    I'm mainly a bassist, I started learning guitar after bass. I play a Mexican made Fender Jazz Bass and an American Precision Bass.

  6. Count me in. I play a Fender P-bass, a fretless Fender Jazz bass, and a student 3/4 upright bass. I dig on all music, and there isnt any type of music I don't enjoy.

    I used to be a bass player, haven't played in a while, although I may be taking it up again. A friend of mine hasn't been able to find a bass player for his band and asked me to fill in the position.

    I play, a little. I don't find it to be all that interesting, so "little" is definitely an overstatement :p

    my first bass was a Washburn, simple lil dude, but i dekced it out to be pretty at leaste since the sound was practically pathetic..

    then some dude owed me $200 for a tragic coke deal and now i have a sweet badass Washburn that actually isnt that great for my fingers so ill probably pawn it so i can buy an accustic/electric that ive been abusing every morning at the music world down the street..

    at the moment im playing my brothers BC Rich Warlock, its a beauty. the sound.. mmm glorious i love it..

    Fingers almost always. If I need a sharp accented sound I'll use a pick, otherwise I always play fingerstyle.

    I like the sound fingers makes much more than a pick.

    I've lost all my picks!

    I play acoustic guitar, but bass is real good, actually, when I go off to University I'm going for Jazz bass. You know who I'm really gettinig into lately is the Red Hot Chili Peppers, jeez Flea is amazing. And Rush will always be my favorite prog rock band, Geddy Lee is the reason I play bass.

    Its like with a pick its just a guitar player on a deep sounding guitar with the b/e strings missing. Fingers all the way. Hey, what do ya think of Victor Wooten?
