To Pick or Not To Pick...

I used to have a borderline complex about not really being proficient playing with my hands.  There are militant bass types that insist that pickless is the only way to go.  I finally came to realize that I just don't care what those people think.  I like the way picks sound.  They have an attack that you really can't replicate by hand, at least not for long durations.  And I personally dont have the time or interest in trying to make myself into a Les Claypool or Steve Harris, no matter how much I like their playing.  Thats their thing, and that's good.  I have my thing, and that's good too.  Or at least good enough.

On the other hand, I haven't really found the "perfect" pick yet...

And I do still try to play without one every now and again...
