Does Mio play bass with fingers or with a pick?
>>
Pick, like a pleb
>>
I thought she played with her fingers.
>>
>>133072343
>play with pic
>Let go of pic
>play with fingers
Its that fucken Simple
>>
OP here
It's kinda weird because I always thought that she played with fingers from what I saw in the anime. But then in the movie she clearly plays all the songs with a pick. And then if you take a look at her trivia in the K-On wiki it says there that she plays with a pick. Also I think that a pick strumming suit HTT's songs better.
>>
>>133072343
>implying a little girl has the skin thickness on her fingers to be able to play the heavy strings of a bass guitar without bleeding everywhere and crying
no.
>>
>>133072211
I'm pretty sure that she playa with both, but most of the time she uses a pick and a dick
>>
She does both depending on how she feels at the time. With the exception of Wookiepedia and prolly Memory Alpha never take a wiki for a television series seriously.
>>
How the hell do these kids afford those instruments?
>>
>>133072478
>What are calluses?
You never played a string instrument have you?
>>
>>133072478
I guess I'm a little girl then
I just started playing bass a few days ago and my right hand's index finger has bigass blister, it hurts so fucking much so I've been playing with a pick. Now I'm seriously thinking about specializing with a pick, contrary to my initial intentions. Mio is kind of an ispiration to me so that's why I'm wondering about it.

If you don't already have them, go download Led Zeppelin II and Abbey Road by The Beatles. Learn those two albums and the major and minor scales and you'll be 95% of the way towards being a competent pop/rock bass guitarist. There's nobody better at producing simple but effective basslines that perfectly fit the song than John Paul Jones and Paul McCartney.
>>
>>133073008
No, start with Primus and Victor Wooten

heheh I know it sounds stupid, but I didn't say she was my only or main inspiration. I guess I would give that credit to Cliff Burton.
>>133072939
It's kinda different for me actually, since Yui is my waifu, not Mio. But I guess Mio is the one I identify myself the most with. Yui is the top tier waifu, though.
>>133073008
Thanks, I'll try that! Both of them play with a pick if I remember correctly, right?
>>
>>133073096
Like Yui?

JPJ and Paul both play with a pick sometimes, yes.

OP can they have been playing bass for two nearly three days now.
>>
>>133073301
OP here, aside from learning bass right now, I can play violin, guitar, saxophone and a little (not much) piano. I'm not extremely good in any of them though since I'm a slacker and don't practice much.

dude, if this thing doesn't get better by the day after tomorrow I'll probably do that. playing with a pick is cool but I really want to play with fingers already. Should I use a needle or something?

Bass and guitar sometimes
>>
>>133072211
Switches between the two because she's not an elitist prick who thinks bassists are only supposed to finger pick.

Bass guitar mainly, drums and guitar secondarily.

Nothing wrong with playing with a pick . Chris squire from Yes played with a pick, and he was pretty fucking good.

>>133073556
I don't get it, you mean my dominant hand? the strumming one? because that's the one I'm having problems with right now. If that's what you mean, I play electric guitar, mostly rock and stuff so I really rarely do fingering style plucking. I remember getting a blister on my thumb when I was learning some classical songs though. If you mean my left hand, the non dominant one, yeah, I do have calluses on it. I remember getting my index all fucked up with cuts because of David Gilmour's bends, so it eventually got resistant. I guess that's why I'm not having any problems with it, even though the bass strings are much rougher. My right hand, on the other hand.. (pun intended)
>>
>>133073720
>i bet you think flea is the greatest bassist ever
No , and that doesn't even make any sense seeing as how Flea plays with his fingers. He's also overrated as fuck.
>>
>>133073720
>implying chris squire is bad
>>
>>133073796
Oh yeah I got confused there. I meant dominant hand and if you're doing classical stuff then you should be fine with finger picking. I don't know what gauges bass strings are, but steel acoustic strings are pretty brutal.
>>
>>133073674
>>133073713
>Implying it wasn't a joke
>>
>>133073849
yeah, I'm really not used to classical on the guitar.. I only play the first part of Bach's Bourree and that's about it.
>>
Idk, but new season please
>>
>>133073796
>I remember getting my index all fucked up with cuts because of David Gilmour's bends
You shouldn't be using your index finger for string bending too often unless you're doing Jeff Beck style pull-off-to-bends or something. There's no finger behind it to anchor the bend with; it's the weakest string bending finger.

yeah, I started using the middle one later, but for some reason I don't remember getting cuts on it. I'm really shit at bending with the ring and pinky though

Drums.

It was fate when best girl was not only the drummer, but also shared my birthday.

I gots a heritage cherry standard. Didn't get it because of Yui. Every other guitar feels wrong to me now. Literally sold my Strat because it felt too wrong in comparison.

I'd have panic attacks maintaining that shit anyways. I'd be happy just getting a 300~500$ guitar every 5 years.

You mean like, changing the strings?

Lemon oil to clean the fretboard? Adjusting the action? Adjusting the bridge to set your intonation correctly?

I mean there are some things that go into keeping a guitar nice.
>>
>>133075072
Well you can cut half of that stuff off if you just avoid Floyd Rose, but ye.
>>
>>133072211
Haven't seen this anime, but she's gotta be a real retard to play bass with a pick.
>>
>>133075072
>Adjusting the bridge to set your intonation correctly?
I did that once. It hasn't moved since. It's pretty easy on a tune-o-matic. Actually put in string saver saddles myself too, like 10 years ago. They're still not breaking strings.
>Adjusting the action?
This only moves if I accidentally brush the rotary thingies while I'm cleaning the LP.
>Lemon oil to clean the fretboard?
>cleaning the guitar
If I'm not gigging around you'll be lucky to get me to do this once every 6 months. I keep her shiny for gigs but she looks rough when I'm not gigging. It hasn't caused it to fall in half or develop holes in the finish 14 years later.
>>
>>133072478
>Implying bass guitar strings are hard to or painful to hold down
I started off playing bass guitar, and holding a note on bass is much easier than on a regular six string because the string is so much thicker. You can play bass without calluses if you're not a pussy, and a little girl that has built up calluses could hold notes just fine.
>>
>>133075307
no one said anything about having problems holding down strings, dude. the point here is about the picking hand
>>
>>133075414
>Picking hand
Then this Anon's comment makes even less sense...
>>
Fingers. I've never seen her use a pic.
>>
>>133072211
I think she canonically uses fingers but in the actual tracks I'm like 99% sure the bass player is using a pick. There are some parts in songs like Curry Nochi Rice where there's some crazy clean crazy fast double time shit going on.
>>
>>133072611
Mugi's father is mafia/yakuza and has ties in an instrument store. Fear bought mugi's and yui's. The other three have been playing since childhood, so their parents.

Why wasn't she cast as the main singer? After listening to the music box, she clearly has the best voice of all the keions.
>>
>>133075784
because she's boring and gay
>>
>>133075804
The character may be but the voice actor is much more talented.
>>
Does anyone else here use a short scale bass? I find long scale uncomfortable.
>>
>>133075784
I guess they weren't aiming exactly for the best voice possible. The anime is about ordinary high school girls on a music club so a good yet ordinary singing voice would be the most fitting one. I even think that Mio's voice is a little too good.
>>
>>133076049
>I even think that Mio's voice is a little too good.

Yeah I thought mio had the best voice until I heard nodoka's song versions.
>>
>>133076017
I'd like to have a Jaguar. It's a lot easier to move around the fretboard for sure.

Because you haven't been practicing. You've just been strumming on it every other week for less than 15 minutes.

You're not practicing something if you're not doing it 5 days a week 15+mins, ideally 45+, with short and long term goals.

>>133077932
learning and playing songs is not practicing. I used to make the same mistake. You need to practice over and over stuff like scales, arpeggios and other exercises in general.

Trumpet, Violin, and Piano. Primarily Piano. Been dipping into electric giitah recently.

There are no set rules on how to play. If you're creating music, you're good.

>too lazy to learn songs

Just jam to some backing tracks if you can. It builds muscle memory and trains your ear making it easier to pick up notes/melodies and playing them.
