    Ah, no. I know music though. I play saxophone and piano already.

    First thing I learned on bass was all the shapes to all the different chord qualities. Then I just play the shape over the bass note. Obviously, I have brain fade and technique problems I need to sort out.

    It all goes so much better in my practice room in front of my cat, I promise. ;-)

    Thanks Nashrakh! When I started I just saw the extra strings as "more of the same". Kinda like comparing a 6 octave keyboard to a 7.5 octave keyboard... Yeah I know, I was ignorant at the time, and now realize there is much more required in the way of muting and keeping things quiet. But whatever, I am stuck with it (6 strings) so I will forge ahead.

    I think I will two-trackd over a pop cover next, then I can't blame my mistakes on the LIVE band! Ha!
