Hi there, I havea Yamaha BXS 375..Ive very new to bass and just got a book in the post called Crash course/Bass. It's a great book and helps me a lot. Im on bass riff 3 now and Im loving it!! I just have one problem..the book is great, but it jumped a bit. Baically Im having trouble pluking the strings. It never showed me where which fingers is best for pluking each string. bassically I feel bit uncomfortable plucking the strings..becouse I keep hitting others and it makes horrible buzzing sound. Also somtimes when I hit the strings and say I put my fingers on fret 5 it makes a buzzing sound, like the wire is hitting the metal fret and back. it's horrible. does anyone know what Im doing wrong? Please help me. I think my bass is tuned ok. anyway, do you have any good tips to feel comfortable with pluking the bass strings?
