Hello all, I know my first post is a thread, sorry, but I don't really have enough experience to start talking about anything else! =P I've had a Squire P-Bass for several years, bought on an impulse when several of my friends thought they wanted to learn how to play bass. After I bought it, I plucked around with it for maybe a week, and it's been in my closet ever since till about two weeks ago, when I pulled it out and decided I really did want to learn to play. Of course by now, my brother has absconded with most of my starter setup gear, amp, tuner, etc... So I've just been playing it acoustically till I can save up for some new stuff. Anyways though, my problem is that no matter how hard I try, I can't seem to spread my fingers enough to hold down notes 2+ frets apart, so holding 1 through 4, or 10, 12-14 is very difficult for me, and I am wondering if I should look into a smaller scale bass, like the Ibanez GAXB150 or the Mustang or something. I've never thought I had small hands, but I do think I have shorter fingers relative to the size of my palm, so maybe that is it? Any help or tips would be appreciated, as would any opinions on the GAXB150.
