: Hello, I'd really like to learn the electric bass, but I have small hands and short fingers. Does this have any impact on one's ability on the bass? Or does it all come down to practice and proper technique? I had a salesman tell me that "the best players have huge hands with alien-like finger length" (No kidding) So what's everyone's opinion on this?
Don't let some ass (read-the salesman) discourage you from playing. Practice and proper teqnique are most definetley the key. You will adapt your technique to a style that works for you, if you practice. I would not give it a second thought. B
