I am a newbie, just bought my first bass about 4 months ago. I have noticed that my fingers and forearms are sore after long periods of playing. I feel like pressing the strings down on the fretboard takes more effort than it should. After looking through the archives, my "action" may be too high. Thanks for the help, this forum has been great for a new player. 1. How do I know what is too high? 2. Would an adjustment possibly help me? 3. Is this something that I can do without screwing up my bass? 4. Does anyone have a photo comparison of high to low action?
