There probably a lentgthy thread on this subject here somewhere, if you know of one, please direct me to it. Shelled out for that 5 string Ibanez SR405 last night. I know. practice, practice practice, and I have been woodshedding most of the night. What was your hardest obstacle to overcome when moving from 4 to 5 wires? What I'm dealing with is that the strings are closer together, and my fingers on the left hand seem to have a mind of their own. "Hey I know where the third string is, so I'm going to press it. "WHAAAAHHHHHH" "No, that's no longer the third string!!!!!" Also...how do you use your new low B string. My direction seems to be to play as I have using the old EAD & G and use the B on the fifth fret as such as the second note of a two beat A chord, instead of using the A string on the 7th fret. I tend to use the B as an occasional effect, rather than trying to change my thinking and playing to use it constantly. "Love the low growl" Any input will be appreciated.
