Hello! I'm a new bass player, I had my bass for a while and was on again and off again. I live in an incredibly small town and the nearest teacher is in another state. I have to learn on my own and a YouTube channel, Bass Buzz, has been a good help. It was going well, until I had to use my pinky. Everytime I would try, my pinky would "collapse" and fixing it caused pain. I had my thumb in the middle of the neck, below the neck, and above it at different angles and it still happened. Even in the correct position, I have seen videos on pinky excercises. Nothing seems to be helping to stop the collapsing. Anyone has any ideas? Maybe it's a weak pinky. Also, any good absolute beginner songs that's not happy birthday and has some notes? I don't care what genre but I do tend to like things like Mitski more, but that's for a higher level lol.
