I had my 6 string bass since December 2012, and I don't think it has left my home more than 10 times. I realize that while it looks and sounds amazing, I just don't have a use for it. Now, I am in the process of selling it, but part of me deep down doesn't want to get rid of it. I want to keep it as a tool in my arsenal, but I know that it won't get much of any true playing time. Nothing more than a practice bass. I am truly a 5 string player.
Also, I just don't feel right playing on the C string. I feel that I don't belong that high on the register. Once I start playing the high notes, i feel that the bottom and the groove of the song is lost, and i am out of my place. I don't know players that play on the high part of the neck, but for me, its not the way I want to go.
My sound is My sound.
