I'm looking for technique advice for paying melodic lines over the bridge pickup on a Jazz bass. I like the feel of a P-bass played over the pickup but love the sound of a Jazz played over the bridge pickup. I've been practicing for months and it feels really awkward still. My hand/arm strains form being so far back. Fingers get sore. Attack feels weak and harmonics are flying all over the place. I know it's probably my technique but I'm at all as to the very basics for practicing and getting better. Sounds half decent through my amp, but when I do this with D.I and some decent headphones it's a real mess.
