unwanted sounds because of the left hand
Hello people, ive got a little problem and id appreciate some help, thanks for taking the time!
Today, playing with a more treble eq, i realized my high strings are ringing all the time! and moreover its not that they react to the sound of other strings but because my fingers of the left hand, that are actually playing in the lower strings, lightly touch them and make them start ringing. Any suggestion how I could fix this? It happens in too different ways:
1- Im playing a note in 8th notes for a while and then i change to another: while im playing the note I can mute the higher strings with my fingers flat over them, but then when changing note they sound, usually it's a g so the g string without being fretted.
2- when im playing fast riffs thant involve playing a different fret for every note, they simply dont stop ringing at all.
I have a 35'' scale bass, 5 strings, and my hand is super small, so I dont think I could manage to play without touching the rest of the strings at all, is that the way it should be? i thought touching them was a way to mute them and thats what i thought i was doing until today :/
Thank you very much
