I don't use a thumbpick but I often play hybrid style with a flatpick and fingers.

I do for more spaghetti western and ambient oriented stuff. I can't get used to it for heavier riffing. I love the expressive qualities of playing with fingers.

80% of what I play is heavy riffing, playing upstrokes helped me get used to the thumbpick.

I generally play Bass VI with a pick, but bass without :idk:

Edit: I just re-read the thread title and saw "thumbpick". I've never considered using a thumbpick on anything other than banjo. I'll give it a try

Someone send me a thumbpick (and a Bass VI) and I'll give it a shot.

When I first started playing guitar, I went out and bought a thumbpick. "If you don't have to hold onto it, it will be LESS WORK," said my 10-year-old brain to me. It didn't work out as well as I thought for Metallica riffs or whatever, and I haven't used one since.

This bass thought is intriguing though. Will give it a try.
