Why ALL Bass Players *Should* Use a Pick


If you’ve been playing bass for any length of time you’ll already know that there’s a lot of controversy around the whole “bass players using a pick” argument…

Well, in this video I want to talk about why all bass players *SHOULD* use a pick.

But… I can back it up ;)

I'm also going to show you some cool pick exercises too that have been super useful for me in terms of getting my pick playing together.

Ooo… and in this video we’ve also got the amazing Cody Wright in the studio with us out here in Brooklyn… he gives you a tour of his pedal board and shows you some killer sounds he’s getting from it…

As always, see you in the shed…

Scott :)

PS. If you’re an member over at look out for a brand new course coming this Friday!

“Slap Fundamentals” with SBL’s very own Phil Mann.

This course has been specifically created for beginner and intermediate bass players who want to get started with slap bass - but also expand into styles that were popularised by players such as Larry Graham and Louis Johnson.

In short, there’s over 2 hours of jam packed footage - it’s step by step - and you’re going to LOVE it!

It’s coming this Friday… so if you’re a member keep a look out, and if you’re not a member yet you can grab your 14 day free trial here.
