I'm an electric bass player and I recently took up double bass with a teacher. My teacher tells me not to squeeze with my thumb and whatever finger I'm playing with on the neck while I play, in order to make for easier and more efficient position shifting. Squeezing the neck is a habit I picked up from electric. I was wondering if you should try not to squeeze the neck while playing electric as well. I can get my fingers into the position needed to minimize the "vicing" of the neck, but it feels terrible. Thanks in advance.
