I started playing bass seriously on my Fender Jazz V and I recently decided I'd try out a 6 string 24 fret. Are there any techniques or exercises you've found that have helped you transition from a 5-string to a 6-string smoothly? Did you pretty much have to learn the bass all over again? I play a very wide variety of styles including slapping/popping. Personally, I think keeping the C string muted will probably be the hardest thing to get used to, along with popping the G string(hehe) which is no longer the highest string. I understand it's gonna take a great deal of practice for me personally. I'm just wanting to here other's experiences with the switch.
