Thanks, Daric. Not only beginners do this; I made this mistake as I tried to speed up. I spent a lot of metronome time tearing down what took me years to incorrectly build. It’s best to get this right, the first time. We don’t have time to do it right, but we have time to go back and do it again? PS: A fretless helped me a lot with note sounding. I hated it when I first bought it, but love it now!
Good point man! Yes a fretless will help tremendously! Your intonation has to be spot on or else you’ll be a half step or even a whole step off in either direction!
Hi Daric—Please share your muting techniques. Clean, clear, and precise are undermined when strings adjacent to a note being played are vibrating. Can you share your methods for overcoming this problem? Marvin
Sure thing Marvin, there will be a full course on muting/palm muting
Useful advice. Thank You.
Hello Daric – You’re right on point with this lesson. I play guitar firstly and had that problem even though i just started playing the bass. Great Point my brother!!!!! an A for you.May God continue to give you wisdom to give us your insight on the BASS.
Great tip for me.
