I've been playing bass for about a year now, and I'm stuck. I'm at a hill that I just can't climb over. I can't explain it, but I'm not getting any better. I create so much fret noise. I don't know if it is me or the bass. I can't play the simplest tunes. It seems my skill just went down. But I finally figured how to incorperate major and minor scales into grooves, which I have been wanting to do for a LONG time, so I think that has helped me some, but I'm still at an impass. I just can't really explain it. I'm just no good. Has this happened to you? Were you able to overcome it? How? I'm confused!
