A stubborn 4 stringer finally broke. After playing the four string for over 15 years, I got myself a 6 string. I figured it would be a great way to expand my thinking about playing bass, and open up some possiblities. I picked up an Ibanez SR406 for around $300, so I figured it would be a relatively low cost experiment. For some reason I keep on trying the Les Claypool stuff on this thing. Anyways, it's been fun and challenging. I have fun jamming out, until I realized I somehow got into the key of B when I should be in A, or I pop an open C when I meant to pop a G. Noodling around with the extra strings have been fun, but it takes a while to get used to them. Anyone former and current four stringers have any tips or ideas?
