SnakePick has made playing bass so much more pleasurable. I play bass for The Alements, a punk band from Annapolis Maryland, USA. Our songs are fast. I’ve always used a pick and prefer the technique and sound of downpicking. Downpicking was used and perfected by Dee Dee and CJ Ramone, two bassists I grew up admiring. Before I started using SnakePick the combination of fast playing and gripping a regular pick always caused my hand to cramp up. I started experimenting with special picks designed to stay on your finger and came across SnakePick about a year ago. These picks are killer! They wrap around my index finger and allow me to decrease the amount of pressure on my grip. The result is fast downpicking with no hand cramp. Because of SnakePick I can play without worry, which increases my confidence and improves my performance.
