I've primarily been playing basses with 18 mm spacing at the bridge (Dingwall NG and Ibanez EHBs). Recently I started picking up my five string Ibanez Mikro again, which I believe has 16.5 mm spacing at the bridge. I've noticed that I have to pay more attention to my plucking hand technique with the Mikro. It reminds me of a ramp, where there's a tangible thing keeping technique in check. Has anyone else noticed having to improve your plucking hand technique when going to tighter string spacing?
