I don't play with my bass "that" low when standing, but I find as I get up past around the 12th fret, I can't use my pinky to play on the E string, hand is basically over-stretching. I can do this easily sat down, or with the bass higher, obviously. Is it "normal" to just say, "ok, no more pinky up there, use 3rd finger instead, and modify the "one-finger-per-fret" approach? I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything important, or going to get in a bad habit. I think/agree the "one-finger-per-fret" is just a good idea to start with, but shouldn't be stuck to in every single case anyway. I've only really noticed this issue when drilling scales all over the neck, but don't want to limit how far up the neck I play.
