This is something of a philosophical question, bear with me: I have TI flats on my main bass, a franken P with a wide, thin (57 RI style, 1.75 nut) neck. When I play alone, nothing beats TI flats. They're so delicate and musical, I go right into THE ZONE Unfortunately when I jam with friends, I start dancing, foot tapping, headbanging; I get amped up. And it makes me want to dig in while playing and DUN DUN DUN ... the TI's start to fart out, forcing me to play by the bridge where theres less flexibility and finesse. I've tought myself to play bass, and I get the feeling that staying with low action (plus this super wide neck) is good for my left hand, forcing it to stretch without gripping too hard. With low action, my left hand never really cramps up. But if I raise the action, my right hand can really dig in when I'm jamming! Which is satisfying! Do you see my dilemma? Should I take the "high road," keep the action low, and force myself to be a more controlled, finessed player (with both hands)? Or should I throw caution to the wind, raise my action a bit, and really let myself dig in?
