Hi Bass Friends,
I’m just over 30 days into the course, practicing about 4-5 days each week. My question is about WHERE on the finger to press down on the strings? I’m noticing that the tips of fingers 1 and 2 are literally tender and numb some days, too ouchie to practice. Is that normal? (I searched the forum and didn’t find the exact answers I was seeking)
I found this picture to help articulate my issue.
I have been pressing on fingers 1 and 2 using A and B, but that results in the numbness. Should I be doing more of C? My finger 3 is chill doing C and finger 4 is mostly C but more on its side due to reach position from having smaller hands. I am also noticing that my position changes drastically depending on which string and fret I’m on. Is some of this stuff like “whatever works, babe”?
How do you do it?
