  1. Happy Birthday TheLoneBassist!

  2. I will most definitely give this a try, I'm really fond of the pinch technique itself when it comes to power chords, now and again though since im left handed playing a right handed bass I have some issues with the fret hand which makes me lose my concentration in my plucking hand, and so its like a big circle of hatred lol, but thanks for telling me about the finger nail technique hopefully it works I'm left handed as well and play both bass & guitar right handed. I've found that this gives me a big advantage with my fretting hand but a disadvantage rhythmically with my right hand. I simply don't have the coordination in my right hand to maintain strumming patterns. Needless to say I will never attempt rythym guitar! That being said with enough practice you should be able to easily master fingerstyle and pinch chords on bass. If you choose to transition to guitar at some point strumming with fingernails shouldn't give you much trouble either. If you need further info on how to do it search "rasgueado technique" or "Flamenco" on YouTube. There are tons of videos there on these techniques! Well thanks for the advice :) and yea the only thing my right hand mainly has is speed but i have moments where my brain will completely back fire and I have issues doing a open string on like the second string while mixing in notes from the strings above and or below the open strum, and I really feel its from not playing with my dominate hand, I might try getting a new Bass or at least trying one at my close GC whenever I can to see if it makes any difference
  3. @@coldrampage thanks for the advice, ill def give it a try and see how it affects me, i might try to get a dunlop Tortex Triangle when i get my next check in

  5. Hey everyone, I play a Ibanez GSR 200 4 String bass with Ernie Ball Super Slinkies 45-100 and one of my biggest issues is trying to pick because it seems im not gripping enough and it slips or i end up close to the saddle and it starts to slightly cut and chafe against my hand, the picks i use are a Dunlop Flow 2.0, Dunlop Jazz III, Ernie Ball Prodigy 1.0 and a series of custom made picks from vegetable ivory from my friend, so i just wanted to know if there was any kind of advice someone could give me on just finding a comfortable way to play with the pick
  6. Yea, in all honesty i agree with coldrampage, 45's will do best for what a lot of people usually want to do when it comes to bass, and if you wanna keep the light strings but play heavier they have some pedals if I'm not mistaken to kick the octave down so you can play other tunings while keeping your bass in the E standard form. Personally I play with 55's-110's and granted i wont hit the E standard, I mean if I wanted to I could but like they are great if you decide to hop down into the C sharp to B standard gauge
