    Hi,

    not sure if this is really a technique topic, moderators i apologise if this needs to be moved :meh:

    the other day i picked up my bass to practice, and the height just didn't feel right - but its the same height i've been playing at for almost 2 years now - i can't find a comfortable height for my bass at the moment...

    i feel like i've lost my mojo!!!!!! :(

    has this ever happened to anyone? i'm sure its just a biological thing maybe, muscles grow here and there and it might throw things off a little as time passes - its just a bit disconcerting at the moment!

    i don't like the feeling of having to fidget when i strap it on and try to play or practice!

    Well, where I play the bass just varies all the time, and sometimes I will mess with the strap even as I'm playing...

    But I can't relaly play high...like where it is when i'm sitting is fine, or usually I play standing with well, keeping my hand by my crotch (you guys know what I mean)
