Anyone heard of this rap/grunge group? They were nominated for a Juno this year. I got to see them on Thursday at a local club. They can sure put on a show!

The bassist gave me an autographed pick, so if I ever need to use a pick I'll start with that.

I love Manafest Smile

The song "No Plan B" is one of my all-time favorites

They played No Plan B at their gig on Thursday. I didn't record it. But, it was pretty good. "Impossible" is the only song that actually stuck in my head, because I see that music video all the time.

Never....never.....NEVER use something like an autographed pick to play with. Keep that for inspiration.

I use a pick all the time. When I started playing, my favorite bass players were from Motley Crue, Twisted Sister, and AC/DC. They all used picks with their playing. So, I thought I had to as well. Now, I use one all the time except for slower songs that need more sustain.

Back to Manafest, he's pretty good for a rapper.

I can pull off AC/DC songs like TNT without a pick. In fact, I can pull off a lot of stuff without a pick. (I've been told that picks are Evil or Very Mad except for extreme metal)

Back to Manafest … yep, he's OK. He did a freestyle with random objects from our pockets. It was funny.

I could care less if using a pick is the right or wrong way to play my basses. As long as you're comfortable with your technique, then it's okay. That's how I play, and I've been doing it for over 20 years. I don't feel like learning to do it another way now.

I have a Bride pic, but this pick is so thin that I never use it.

I always use a pic for playing on my guitar.

Indeed, a guitar is different from a bass. The Manafest show had a guitarist too, of course.

Most guitarists like those thin picks. They are great for speed.

Most people use a pick on their guitars. That's normal. Using a pick on a bass is less normal, but there are people that do it. I'm even more dependent on picks with bass as I switch back and forth from bass to guitar and back again. I just use a nice medium pick on both.

I just played for about two hours, intermittently. The left index hurts the most (I was bending the string).

I think we need to start a "bass/guitar" thread!

I tended to use heavy or extra heavy picks, but I play with the rounded edge not the tip and I use fairly heavy strings as well.

The lead guitarist in my old church band grew his thumbnail out and used it as a pick and then used his other fingers at the same time....he could strum with his thumb and pick out notes with his fingers at the same time....it was really cool.

I love to use thin picks for playing up- and downstokes.

When I started to play electric guitar, I used thick picks, but now I have a medium pick that I use.

Manafest is really good. I was surprised how much I liked The Chase. I used to be Kj-52 fan but it seemed his rap beats out did his rock. Whereas with Manafest it's got a lot more rock sound.

Too bad The Chase isn't his permanent sound. He did that album specifically as a "Rock project" but who knows, maybe he'll continue that sound since it was received so well.

Yeah, I've wondered about his earlier albums and I know they have some rock stuff on them but wasn't sure what the ratio was between rock and programmed beats. The Chase is the only thing I have by him outside of Impossible on my mp3 player. He is playing at a local free 2 day festival in Des Moines this summer and I may go and check it out.

He has pretty much added the band. He wants to keep the rap/rock thing going, from what I understand. A good friend of mine is his DJ on some of the tours. So, he is always giving me a heads up on things that Mana is doing.

He is pretty good, basically still a kid, really.
