A general question for bass players, not sure whether it's a personal preference or generally accepted rule for fret positions - when playing am 'A' do you play it as open string or position 5 on the E string, same goes for other open notes? When creating CLDC i seem to be faced with this issue often but tend to go for the non open string option, thanks

@Regulator It's entirely personnal but some riff might call for one option over the other to be actually nicely playable.
