Wembley 1990

Have just watched a clip of Prince soloing with the model c, toward the end he puts the pic in his mouth and plays it like a bass guitar. Is this common and/or particularly difficult? It looks impressive!

I don't know the clip but generally speaking it plucking a guitar is plucking a guitar no matter the sound it makes. Bass guitar usually has less strings and thicker. A regular guitar is 6 or 8 or 12 strings and the thickness of the strings changes but fingerplucking is a real thing. In funk groups like the Family Stone would play an alternating rhythym guitar then join in with the bass on some songs. Maybe some serious guitar heads will have more insight though.
