I have just started trying to play my bass. I have an Ibanez exb404pr and an Ampeg B100R amp with a Monster cable. I have a book to get me started but am having a problem. Everytime I pluck a string I am getting a lot of vibration from the others. I constantly have to stop and put my hand on the strings to get them to be quiet. What is the best way to keep the other string from making noise when I am playing another note. For example when I play the E the G will be faint. This is frustrating for me. I am thinking of taking a lesson but the only guy willing to try and teach me plays a regular six string.
