How do you guys play bass sitting down? My fret hand elbow is as high as my head and my wrist hurts. Is it safe to say  bass players MUST stand?

 

At leas tthe larger strings don't dig into the skin as much as the unwound strings of a guitar. Greater noob longevity... :)

My arm is too short to play my bass while sitting comfortably.

How do you guys mute a string on a real bass right after you've played it. Without muting it, it doesn't sound clean and percussive Example, that 6-fret wide bass handshape, do you play with index and middle finger or do you play it like finger-style, with 4 fingers on 4 strings muffling the sound right after it is struck. I find the A11 note particularly annoying as it keeps ringing out over the other subsequent notes.

 

Thanks for the noob help and helping me to better appreciate my bass 1-week rental.

Yeah Stacy's Mom is giving me all kinds of inconsistent regging, but I assume it's just me/my guitar or the calibration/tuning given other people using the same cdlc are getting 98s etc.  It keeps saying I'm not hitting the notes when I palm mute (but fine when I don't palm mute), nor the 3 finger power chords, and I'm like, 'Female Dog, please'.

Yes! After 2 hours of riff-repeating and various speeds, section by section, I've finally beat my Blaze emulated guitar playthough score of 83% with a REAL bass score that exceeds it.

 

Those galloping triplets are hard to get perfect but the game is forgiving. Difficult to increase speed on triplets. Any tips?

 

I might actually get a bass picture-in-picture playthough later to show case my ultra noobishness on real bass. Least I could do if I am asking people to submit playthroughs. :)

One hour warning.

@@Berneer playing while sitting shouldn't be a problem if your bearing is good. If your elbow is at the high of your head something seems wrong, sounds like a classical guitar pose with your guitar's body diagonal between your thigs. If so then try to move your bass on your right thig and move it's head down. I personally prefer bass playing while sitting.

The string muting thing is just release the pressure of your fretting finger which controls the leght of the notes. Of course are there other ways to mute i.e. open strings like mute with left hand or just put a plucking finger on the string again, but this only works if the song is slow enough.

Well here is that bass playthrough, though 2% lower than my best. And I know I have terrible form. Wrist totally bent. Nothing to be proud about for showcasing, but, I want to have as much content for the video compilation I want to send to Blaze.

 

Cheers!  Thanks to all for being so welcoming. I cannot keep pace and currently participate to the CS regularly for now, but probably by the end of the summer, I should be back much more regularly. For now I have a bunch of other Rocksmith work to do to test stuff for raynebc, for Alex 360, make a Tech Notes Sequel caslled "Chordify tutorial, and then this summer my 2nd child will be born  and I administer a pretty serious soccer league, so it is really difficult to be a regular.

 

I hope you guys have a blast and I'll see you all soon!

 

 

As I am even less a bassist than a guitarist, please do offer things that stand out as the first candidates for me to correct when playing a bass. I feel  the tension everywhere, so my form has got to be very, very poor. :)

This tip really helped me with my gallops:

 

Gallops are not triplets.  They are an 1/8th note followed by two 1/16th notes.

Picking pattern = D DUD DU

Make sure you count "1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and" and keep the picking hand in constant motion.

 

My gallops aren't where they need to be either, but getting a lot better practicing this way.

 

-Hope that helps.
