(This is only my third week practicing) 1. im working on the E-String on the notes F(1st fret), G(3rd fret) & G#(4th fret), trying my best to use 1 finger per fret because thats how i was instructed to. but everytime i hit G or G#, the G & D strings vibrate and i cant figure out HOW to mute them? Help PLease.. 2. how come when i see bassists live i never see them using one finger per fret and they never have their thumb directly in back in the fret board. they have their fingers very close together(not spaced) and their thumbs are above,if not a little bit over the fretboard(and i dont really see them using the pinky either)? please explain.
