Topic: Picked Bass confusion.

    Picked Bass confusion.

    There seem to be some confusion about Chris Hein - Bass "Picked"

    Some people think the bass is only plectrum-picked.
    No, its finger-picked, plectrum-picked and pinch-harmonics, all in one instrument.

    Here are my fingers after "finger-picking" the MusicMan Stingray in April 2007:


    Chris Hein
    Chris Hein - Horns / Chris Hein - Guitars / Chris Hein - Bass

    Looks like a left hand though :-)

    Are those blood blisters? The only blisters I get are these light-colored ones. They don't pop because I usually stop playing after I get them. But thankfully I've built up enough callouses on both hands that I don't have to worry about blisters much.

    You should see the damage practicing thumb up, thumb down style slapping can do to both sides of your thumb. :P

    That's pretty gross. Thanks for your dedication to great sample libraries!

    What sound is "Finger picked" used for?
