: I'm just beginning bass and when I try to play my bass fast, like one note after the other, the notes all mesh together to form one, annoying sound...I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong and there's a teqchnique I don't know about or if there's something wrong with the amp or something...thanks for you help.
Nathan, how beginning are you? have you gotten a good grasp on your tempo yet? I mean the boring stuff, practicing whole notes, half notes, quarter notes to a metronome over and over again. The basics. How is your right hand left hand coordination. Are they locked in with one another? Perfectly in tune with each others movements? If not.....thats o.k. keep practicing, slow down a little and dont give up. Have you ever had a teacher? Even just a few lessons can be enough to correct some "bad" habits that may have crept into your style. Personally, I think teachers are great. I have been playing 20 years and i still go to this teacher for advice once in a while. Its just the outside perspective that helps. I hope this helped you out in any small way......late.......john
