I was wondering if anyone had any advice on fretting hand technique, I feel like this is a huge hurdle impeding progress. I’ve gotten some suggestions from SBL (Scott’s Bass Lessons) however these haven’t made much difference in posture from the fretting hand.
Being taught One finger per fret (roughly) to be able to maximize reach has taken a toll on my wrist, I often find my hand is over-stretched and the wrist is at a steep angle. Secondly, even though I try not to put much pressure on the back of the neck with the thumb, my whole fretting hand ends up feeling tense when positioning the thumb directly below/under the index/middle finger as taught.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
I’ll try to attach a few pictures from a vimeo video to shed some light on the form when trying to accomplish one finger per fret. I feel as though simandl would be much easier on the wrist?
