So, I've been noodling around on the bass for a while, and I want to play guitar. I'm trying to learn to play finger style in the hopes that my finger style picking technique on the guitar will help with my bass technique in the long run. I find that the skinny strings I have on my Strat right now are very easy to "overfret," though—I press so hard on them that I bend notes. I have to play very gently, and it's aggravating. I also miss the feel of flatwounds on the bass, but people say those sound terrible on the guitar. (I've heard that country players use them to great effect, but I'm not sure I can hear much of a difference.) Have any of you bass players run into the same issue? What strings do you use on your guitars? Any of you using flats?
