Hi there, just had a look on google for a bass forum to ask a question and this place looks awesome. I'll definitely have a good read and come back often OK I am a beginner and have had no lessons. What I learn is gernally from a book and I play songs from tabs at the minute. Although I am getting better whilst going through the book exercises. My question is about the little finger on my left hand. When I am playing I do use it, however when not being used it goes in an odd curled up position by default same is true of my third finger to some extent. When I see pros play though all fingers are covering the entire neck and often I can't even tell which fret or finger they are holding down. Is my problem normal for beginners? How do I get over it and do I need to? Cheers for your time! Michael.
