    Menace – as immolationmetraton said, it is a Wawick. Specifically, it is a Warwick Katana neck-through with a high-gloss ocean blue finish. Warwick stopped making this bass, though I understand you can still special order a “custom shop” if you wanted one. It is pretty expensive, though…

    Julian – for real? I have a video for every note here… A good fretboard diagram is essential if you need to learn or refresh your memory – you can get a poster or find it in most bass instruction books.

    If you wanted to go up in pitch to a C, however, I’d recommend hovering your middle finger just over that note in preparation of fretting it. In other words, get your fingers ready for the next note and place them in the right place, ready to go. If you plan on shifting position, think about what notes you’ll be playing and with which fingers after the shift and mentally prepare. Practice the shift slowly until you get used to it. This may seem basic, but it will make your playing smoother.

    Hiya Basstard – it’s usually best to figure out what note you’re going to play next, and have the appropriate finger either already on that note or ready to press down on it. Using your example of having your index finger on the second fret of the A string (playing a B), we need to know where you plan to go next. Are you going down in pitch or up?

    hello Charles,

    i have a small question : i play the bassguitar for about a year now, but im still not sure how to play in a right way with my left hand. is it better to let my fingers rest on a string below, or should i hold them above the string?

    for example : if i hold my indexfinger on the second fret of the A string, should i rest the other 3 fingers on the D string?

    kind regards, Thomas
