How do you decide which "e" note to play? For example, the "e" on the lower ledger bar is in the song, followed by the "e" in the space between the 3 and 4 ledger lines. There are many "e"'s on the fretboard, how does one determine which to play? I ask this because I've been working on Autumn Leaves with my bass teacher and because of 1/8th notes and distance on the fretboard, he's said "just play that note in another area." I practiced that section of the song, making it easiest for movement on the fretboard. Is there some guideline other than "as long as it sounds good." I've had this dilemna in other songs where attempting to remain in the same position (1st or 2nd) required huge jumps quickly making it extremely difficult FOR ME to play the song at all, let alone play it well.
