I wanted to perhaps start a discussion on the relationship between the gauge of your strings and your attack. Fingerstyle players- do you feel like you can play with a lighter attack on heavier strings and still get a good tone, or do you feel you're better off with a lighter gauge and light attack? How about a light gauge w/ strong attack? I think I've been teaching myself to dig in a bit too hard because I've always used light gauge strings. Usually it's 35-95 or 40-100s. I just picked up a Ray4 that had 45-105 and they felt super heavy but had a fat tone that I'm just not used to. I can play much lighter and it sounds fat but I lose the bright, poppy sound I get from the lighter gauge, especially when slapping. Can't decide what I like better. I guess I'll just have to buy another bass or 2 for options.
