Hi all! I tried searching this topic, but to no avail. I'm brand new to the low B, and I'm struggling with it. I can play my fours pretty cleanly, and even the move to fretless was more fear than actual difficulty. Are there any exercises or online lessons that can help make the change easier. Granted, I've only been at it for a few days, but I feel like I suck again! I'm not going to give up, but it sure is discouraging to go from a decent player to someone who sounds like they just picked up a bass for the first time! Specifically: I can't seem to play the B cleanly, because of the longer stretch with the wide neck I think of my strings from low to high, so unless I'm concentrating, I often mistake the B for E, E for A, etc. I'm clanking all over the place with fret buzz and slipping fingers. I asked some buddies, and they said I should just play EADG on my 5er until I get used to the differences, then gradually work in the B. That sounds good, but I'd like to hear from other life-long 4-string guys (and girls) about how they made the transition.
