    hiya, i recently got a new bass, and its strug up with brand new strings, the G string being 35G and so on. However, im used to playing 45g's, and cant seem to adjust. This problems only really apparnt on the G string, eg my finger/thumb gets 'stuck' on it on teh way up.

    Would it be better to just by a 45g' for the G string, or get a whole set in the same gauge (heavey gauge?)

    Cheers!
     
  2. I think the best way to go would be to buy a whole set of heavy gauge. Just put the G on there and see how it is with the rest of your strings. If this mixed set of strings works for ya, then there you go. If not, you can put the rest of the heavy strings on.
