    im new to bass,i just bought a gk amp and man now i can hear every string rattle and other inperfections in my playing.any sugerstions on how to play cleanly.thanks:crying:
  2. I use my right hand 3rd and 4th fingers resting on the A & E strings a lot while my right hand mutes mutes the D & G.

    Though I think that's the absolute hardest thing to teach anyone is the left hand/right hand muting techniques.

    It's just a matter of time and practice and it will come naturally...

    The best way is to get some lessons with a good teacher, who can see exactly what it is you are doing and how to address that!

    Nobody here can see how you are playing - so any advice can only be a guess at best! :meh:

    turn down your treble and turn down your tone control.
