Rules of the game : Guess the album and artist name from the small preview.
Who gets it right should post a new challenge.
I'm starting off with something easy :

I have heard a lot of times the expressions that we "pay extra for the brand name on the headstock" and also the completely oposite ones where "name doesn't matter at all".
What is your opinion?
How much are those letters on the headstock important to you when deciding on buying a new instrument?

As a bass player who plays 90% of the time fingerstyle, I'm interested to know what you think about these two picking approaches? Fingerstyle technique for me feels very natural but using pick has its benefits both technically and in sound.
How important fingerstyle playing vs using the pick is to you?
Do you practice fingerstyle approach?
I have noticed that this is a skill that sometimes gets overlooked by guitarists and when time comes for some fingerstyle or even picked "arpeggio styles" parts - they have trouble (in getting good attack, timing, picking patterns definitions...).
What is your approach?
Which of the two you find easier?

Do you always warm up before playing and which exercises do you use to do that?
I must say that I don't actually always warm up properly before practicing and it might affect my performance. I know quite a few cool warm up exercises that really get my fingers going and than it is much easier for me to start playing more complicated stuff. Sometimes I do them sometimes I don't prior to home practice sessions. What I'm always careful about is to start slowly and don't play any crazy stuff immediately.
I do warm up before going to stage on the gigs, usually with fretting exercises going up the neck and also some slap bass stuff. What I have noticed there is that if I don't warm up properly, my hands would get tired very fast during the first song (and if the band chose a fast one - you're in trouble).
How does your routine look like?

Hey guys - what is your least favorite guitar color/finish?
For me it would be natural wood finish on a cheap guitar
It just doesn't do it for me.

Hi Bogdan, thanks for the add! :) Any chance of some Heavy or Thrash Metal bass lessons? ;) Even if that's not your style really, am I right? :)
