So I own and play a early 2000’ Peavey Fury VI 6 string bass. And what started out as an “I’m going to just fool around on this” Turned into a " this is my life now" situation. Due to having so many more options for hitting notes.
But tonight after about 3 days solid of playing nothing but the 6 string to adjust to the fret board, the new note placements on the new strings, and just generally grooving. I decided to pick up my Dean and play a few songs. I have to ask if anyone ells has ever done this? I used to think a 4 string bass neck seemed pretty big. but after playing on the Fury for so long, I feel like a normal 4 stringer is tiny. like I could play the G string with my thumb from the top while fretting the E with my other fingers Tiny.
But in all seriousness, what opinions do you all have on 6 string Basses?
