Okay, I'm not sure if this is normal or not since I'm fairly new to bass, so I thought I would ask. When I have my lowest string tuned to E if I play it open alot of times I'll get this clicking sound. I think I've figured out what the problem is, I think my string is making contact with the first fret, but what do I do about it? Is there a way to fix this? Also, when I tune down to low D I have the same problem somewhat, except it's with most of the lower frets, not just open. Any ideas or suggestions on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated. Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to IM me at dmbdrummer10 - Thanks.
