I have been playing for about 7 months now and I'm still having a problem with string noise from my fretting hand. I seem to have this problem with quick changes like on a 12 bar blues riff. I get that sort of high pitched finger scratch between notes. It doesn't bother me when I'm playing guitar but I hate it on my bass. I keep trying to work on being more deliberate of pulling off straight up but I just can't get rid of it. I don't have much of a stretch. I get about four frets index to pinky and thats working hard to do it. Is this a technique problem or is this something everybody lives with? Should I try flat wounds to get rid of it? I am using DR high beams right now and it's worse than ever. My bass came with Elixers and I had that problem, I changed to Ernie Ball Slinky's and it didn't help either. Of course all of these are round wounds. This is really bugging me. Help!
