I consider myself a beginner even though I've been "playing bass" for 4 years. I've had lessons for a short time, but quit because they were too expensive. I can play along with friends fairly well just for some background bass sound, mostly by ear. My problem is, I want to be a better player but I need to know how to fix my left hand finger positioning. I noticed that when most "good" bass players play, their fingers fall flat on the strings. but my fingers look like this first pic. And when I try to play a simple blues chord my fingers bunch up like the second pic. How can I fix this so my fingers will go in the right places??? Any help would be very valuable to me and much appreciated. Thanks!!!
