So I've been playing bass for a long time (far too long considering how bad I am at) but I've only recently gotten really serious about. Anyway the problem I'm having is what to do with my right arm, I play with a pick and I know - or rather think - I'm not meant to have my right arm resting or touching the bass. When I do have it touching the bass the area of my arm that does touch it becomes super irritated and uncomfortable. On the other hand, when I don't have any part of my arm touching the bass is all twisty turny crazy times and I can't play properly. This is particularly a problem when sliding, the act of moving my left hand basically twists the bass from my right hip to my left hip if that makes sense? I've searched a lot for an answer to this and I probably look like a big dumb idiot for asking but I'm really at a loss... Do I put my forearm on the bass or let it float and just not be terrible all the time?
