Rock bass players tend to have their bass low on the body. Is this because they just don't play in a way (soloing high on the neck on the low strings where a low bass is uncomfortable) that requires a better position? What about those players that do play high? I can't for the life of me see how someone like that guy out of Metallica ever plays? If I see him play high he's bent double like he needs the toilet really badly. This can't be comfortable. I've tried wearing my bass low (it does look cool of course), but it puts pressure on my wrist if i want to play around the 12th fret on the E or A string. I don't imagine my anatomy is that bizarre, nor is my guitar shaped so unusually.
