Using a plectrum to play bass!…

Surely not?! 😉

Well actually, if you’re aiming to be a versatile and in demand bass player you certainly should be able to play bass using a plectrum (also commonly referred to as a pick).

Just as an example of how effective using the plectrum can be when playing bass I recommend checking out Carol Kaye, Bobby Vega, Chris Squire, Steve Swallow and Justin Chancellor. All are phenomenal bass players… and all of them play with a plectrum.

Unfortunately playing bass with a plectrum has a certain stigma attached to it. In the past I’ve heard crazy statements such as “you’re not a real bass player if you play with a pick”… which is completely untrue. In the video below I explain where this stigma has originated from – and why you should completely ignore it.

With many of students I’ve worked in the past with I’ve seen constant bad habits and incorrect techniques when using a plectrum. In this lesson I’m going to show you 4 exercises that you can apply straight away to help you clean up your picking technique.

As always, see you in the shed…
