    Yes, and not a confusing as you would think.

    Do a search, it's been done to death.
     
  4. I'd say that the fanned system is really easy to get used to, but I will say that tapping, especially right hand tapping in the upper register, was the toughest to adjust. It just puts you're right hand in a strange placement. I suppose you can adjsut to it, but with the half-hour or so of playing a fanned system bass, I didn't find the right-hand tapping was adjusting all that easy at all.

    I always think of Jean when someone talks about tapping on fanned frets.
