    Hello,

    help me please.

    I did a recording today and i don't know what's wrong.

    I think the A-String doesn't sound right.
    Soundfile

    Are there 5th's hearable?
    Is it my technic or is something wrong with the bass?

    Or is it just ok? :confused:

    Danke für Deine Antwort.

    Wenn ich mir das laut anhöre sind da irgendwelche leisen Töne, die da nicht hin gehören.

    Oder ist das normal?
    Zugegeben: Wenn ich Gitarre, Drums und Keyboard dazu habe, fällt das nicht so sehr ins Gewicht.

    Beim Üben störts mich bloß ein wenig und ich dachte, dass mit meiner Spielweise was nicht stimmt (angehende Gicht oder so :D .

    Thank's for answers.

    If i hear the bass loud there are some silent tones and i think they sound wrong.

    Maybe i am too sensible. :crying:

    It isn't a real problem when i am playing with the band.
    But every time i practice only with the bass, it bothers me.

    My Deutsch is rusty, so I'll avoid trying to answer like that :)

    Could be technique, are you studying with a teacher or are you self-taught?

    Silent tones? You mean the sound when the string touches the frets and makes a metal kinda sound?

    @tplyons: Nevermind, you see my english? :D :D
    I learned keyboard and guitar.
    Now i try it as a self-educated person with the bass.
    I have time ...

    @*Munkeh*: Yeah, 100% right! I never noticed. And i never noticed before when playing my guitar (ok, its distorted all the time).
    But after reading your post i heard my soundfile again and played the bass.
    I hear the same "wrong" tones, when tapping on the bass.

    And now the most silly question: why do they differ from the tone i am playing?
    Is it possible to "kill" these tones?

    Are you actually fretting these, or are they just ringing? Sounds like it could be poor fret hand technique. How long have you been playing bass? Usually takes a large bit of playing to get good muting technique down.

    I used to have unwanted fret noise too, but i learned to tidy my technique up and it's extremely minimal now, i found when playing in high volumes, the chances of fret noise is low but when playing in low volume, the chances of fret noise is high.

    Anyone seen the metallica some kind of monster DVD? Seen the part when Rob is rehersing the songs when he just joined metallica? He is playing his bass through headphones so no one can hear it apart from, just listen to the amount of fret noise there! And when he plays live, no fret noise... meh!

    I try to improve my playing technic now.
    Maybe this will help.

    Thank you for the answers!
