Mr. Seaton, Welcome to talkbass. Thanks for taking time for our questions. My question is a pretty general one. I have been working on playing solos in the lower register (half position) of the bass lately. I was wondering if you could offer advice about getting a big clear sound and good intonation down there? I tend to lose clarity and pitch when I am playing down there. I have been playing exercises with my keyboard, playing standard melodies as well as scales and arrpegios to help with my pitch, but what can I do with my right and left hand to make the sound clearer and less muddy? Thanks for taking my call. I will take my answer off of the air.
