Hey all. I'm new to the bass (and any instrument, for that matter) as well as these forums. I'm pretty sure this is the right sub-forum to post this in. I got a Tradition bass a week ago. I've started learning several songs, and gotten the hang of it a bit. I realized how important it is to learn all of the different notes (right?), and so I'm trying to go about doing so. The thing is I'm not sure the best way to go about that. I don't want to just remember where the A's, for example, are, but rather learn how to play them without thinking much about it. I think that makes sense. How would you more experienced players recommend that I learn all of the notes?
