Pick most of the time. Fingers occasionally. I just like the sound of the pick better, and I feel like I have a more consistant rhythm, tone, and overall sound. Prolly just haven't praticed the fingers enough though. I'm sticking with the pick!

Fingers mostly. I use a pick rarely. For some reason I just can't play as well with pick.

depends on what im playing. when i play with my band which is rarely seeing as im not the bassist, i play with a pick because it sounds more powerful. when we are just having a jam session i usually play with the fingers. so i guess you would say both
