Hello Everyone! I've struggled a bit with my bass trying to get better intonation. Its a 39 1/2" string length, WW2 era German laminate. Great tone and tight. But I've found that in the half position between 3rd and 4th, then 4th through thumb, it plays more in tune if I throw out Smandell and think 'electric bass neck' using four fingers up to thumb position. Any advice on technique for this size instrument would be very appreciated!!
