    • Great question. There are always several ways to play anything. But there are definitely a few go to positions and go to fingerings. When you see the chord symbol it’s an indication of what chord and arpeggio it is. So in that 9th measure you see there’s a G-7 so that means a G minor 7 chord which also means when it’s spelled out it’s a G minor 7 arpeggio (1357) and there’s several ways to play that on bass. ie (1431) -fingering. I can show this a lot easier for me to show than say. Don’t have my bass right now but I’ll send an explanation vid to clarify!
