or rather how to not look at the fretboard when playing the bass..... I am trying to develop the discipline of playing and keeping my eyes on the music, rather than keeping a bad habit of memorising the bassline and then looking to find the position for the note. I am starting to just "know" some positions but would appreciate any pointers here. Do people learn the feel for a certain point on the neck or find the note by ear? For example when going from the 2nd fret on the A string to the 10th fret I am starting to play a slide (as indicated in the music) and finding the note by ear and feel. What does everyone think?
