I've been playing for about 2 years in live bands and I'm still working on timing and technique. When I don't use a pick, I get a bit of "clacking" on my Ibanez, but on my Fender Jazz 5-string I get heaps on the low strings. I've tried holing my right hand in different possitions, but the only way I can stop the loud clacking sound on every note is by playing very softly or fingering near the end of the string. The action is fairly low, but not excessive. I'd like to minimise the clacking sound somehow. Any help would be appreciated.
