Bass guitarists usually play their musical instrument with their fingers, though there are a few notable musicians who use bass guitar picks. These include Jazz bassist Steve Swallow and Pink Floyd bassist Roger Walters. Guitarists who use bass guitar picks, the pick is often of a heavy type because the strings of a bass guitar are thicker and heavier than those of an acoustic guitar. Bass guitar picks typically range from 1mm to 3mm though, 3 mm is somewhat on the extreme end of the spectrum, a stronger pick.
Why Use Bass Guitar Picks
Musicians who use bass guitar picks do so for articulation and speed. The use of the pick allows the guitarist to produce a more consistent attack on the upstrokes and downstrokes.
