Music Composers Unite!
I just joind an interesting forum for bass players. http://www.talkbass.com/
I was having problems with my playing technique- I record bass directly and I'm getting a lot of annoying string squeal as my fingers slide along the strings. I researched various types of strings. I'm hoping switching to flatwounds will help with the problem. At that website, I found LOTS of opinions about bass strings. I'll be changing from my roundwounds to Thomastik-Infeld Jazz flat wounds, for my Fender Jazz bass. I'll let you know how they sound... and how they record.
