OK, this is my first post here. Hello and all that. I'm a reformed guitar player. I've been playing bass now for a while, about a year. I still have trouble sometimes with right hand technique, ever since I switched over from using a pick (cos it sounds so much more... bass, when I use my fingers). The main trouble I have is that when I play fingerstyle, the neck tends to drop and I have to support it with my left hand. What I find when I try and fix this is that I have to push my elbow in against the body of the bass, which keeps the neck nice and steady. The problem then is that the freedom of my right hand is compromised. So... which is the 'correct' way? How do you stabilise the neck? Or perhaps I have a problem with the balance of my bass? It is a Fender P-Bass Lyte (pawn shop special model ), and the body might be a bit on the wimpy side.
