I know this has been an issue brought up before by our fellow bassists, but I figured I would give you my story in hopes that maybe somebody can help me figure out what to do. Anyways here's my problem, my guitarist keeps telling me I need to turn it down. But I already cant hear myself at all. He turns his amp up all the way and has it facing me and I swear it's like every time I touch my volume knob he has to say something. And this problem isn't just when we play live, I cant hear any of my tracks on any of our recordings. I have voiced this concern before but none of my band mates really cared. To test and see if I was too loud (or if they could hear me at all) I decided to play in a different tuning but hitting all the frets as I would have normally, thus making me play a whole step higher than everybody else. And guess what? Nobody said anything at all, nobody noticed. In fact, my guitarist mentioned how great the new song sounded and how it was the best I ever played it. So I guess what I want to hear from you guys is what would you do? Keep in mind that I love this band and I really don't want to quit. I just don't know how to tell them that I can't hear myself in a way that will get them to care. Like I said, any input is greatly appreciated.
