Hey guys, just recently I bought a 4 string bass after using a 5 string the last 4 years. I actually found playing the 4 more enjoyable even though I've become very fond of my schecter 5 string the last few years. I've been an avid sight reader the last couple years as I prepare to audition for a cruise line agency here soon and I have become very comfortable playing in the fifth position which allows me to utilize the B string notes E,F,F#,and G and have access to higher notes without shifting as much. I can still play in the first position but I prefer to stay at the fifth position. So for my question; should I learn to get comfortable sight reading on a 4 string bass and having to shift more frequently or is it truly more practical to use the B string as an advantage when reading music (and possibly a 6 string in the future?)? When jamming with friends recently I have enjoyed the 4 string more but since I plan on using my reading skills to pursue my career should I keep with the five or switch to the four as my primary bass? Thanks!
