When i make it hang lower, like almost on out stretch of my right arm then neck of my bass, i wouldn't say dives to the floor but swings a little bit and i have to try and catch it with my left hand while trying to play and my fingers slide on high E which sometimes is heard when i use dfferent tones. So sometimes im having real pain playing stuff like BS's paranoid and Pantera's Domination cuase neck in my hand moves like a fish.

So i just wanna know if anyone had this problem? Is there a bass you could recomend me to try out? and if by chance you've played the one i have and any thoughts on it?

Mines not a large scale bass, and im 5'9 but i don't have the longest arms, i've been trying to find thunderbird to try out so is there a bass you could recomend.

by the way i play with fingers

Well I play my XB 100 quite low (as low as the strap allows), and that works really well (finger ànd plectrum), whilst being 6'1 (1m84)

...Maybe try out loadsa straps?
So this Georgian Olympian runs into a bar
