    I have a extremely rattling E string on my vintage bass, vintage being the make, and whatever i do i can't stop it. This stops me from playing quick notes on that string because they come out very badly. Has anyone got any suggestions????
    I don't think its down to my technique because one of my friends, whose played for quite a while, tried it and said it rattled.
    HELP ME PLEASE SOMEONE
    thanks

    There are lots of possible reasons. Take the bass to a tech and have it checked out so you don't have to guess what's causing the problem.
