Hi everyone, odd question for you Bass VI players, I recently got my hands on a pawn shop bass vi, and I'm surprised by how much I'm digging it. Somewhere along the way it has become my go-to bass for idle strumming and fleshing out songs. Shortly after I bought it, I got it set up at the store with the d'Addario 24-86 set, and I'm encountering the floppy low-E thing, but I've been adjusting my pick/pluck strength so it's not as bad, but I've been seriously considering the heavier LaBella set for more low end. My question to you guys with the LaBellas though, is can you still strum it (comfortably) like a guitar? Sorry if this is a dumb question but it's a whole new realm for me. I will probably get the rounds if I did, but I think this would be crazy hot with flats as well. The reason why I ask is because I think this would be awesome for one hard rocker song we play based on a very basic E-A riff, and I think it would sound great with both the guitarist and me strumming it, instead of me in the corner, eating a meatball sub while playing two open strings. Thanks in advance everyone. BTW I'm completely aware I could strum chords on a four-string P if I wanted to, but please stay on topic.
