    Sometimes I tend to use more than one finger on a fret. I am learning a bit about fingering and positioning from my bass teacher, but I am still new to it. I play pretty fast, so sometimes it is hard to use correct fingers. Does anyone else have this problem? And does anyone have advice? Thanks.

    Yeah. Slow down. Do the things you do with bad technique slowly at first and gradually build up speed.
