hi everyone, I am a new bassist and I've been falling in love with slapping, it is so much fun. However my current bass is a Yamaha RBX170, I find slapping on it a bit hard because the strings are so close to each other (like slapping from e to a, I always end up slapping the E by accident because my thumb is big) Is this a normal thing I need to get use to? Or is it the bass itself? I was planning on getting a Ray 34 to get better, dont know if the strings are father apart. Thanks!
