Do You Find Yourself Glaring at the Fretboard, Because The Bass-Line you’re playing has a humongous Slide of Five or even more Frets?
The Bass-Aid, an adjustable Fretboard Anchor, can help you play these Slides without looking at the Guitar, an Essential Aspect to Playing Bass while Singing.
In my quest for not looking at the fretboard when I play bass-guitar, I have devised a fabric devise which is sturdy enough to withstand sliding yet movable and reversible (unlike a notch in the neck of the bass-guitar).
The Bass-Aid wraps around the neck of a guitar, underneath the strings, at a fret location of the bassist’s choosing. It is tightly wound around the neck to be sturdily affixed to that fret-location. Like a driver can feel when his car goes over a speed-bump without seeing the bump, a bass-player can feel when his hand is at a certain fret because the bass-aid slightly protrudes out the back.
Are you tired of needing to look at your Bass-Guitar while playing?
Tired of making too many boo-boos on the Fretboard?
Then get yourself a Bass-Aid!
Some further food for thought:
- Bass-Aid is only usable on Fretted Bass-Guitars.
- the prototype is designed for Fender Precision Bass Guitar necks
- For use beyond Fret number 6.
- I found that frets 1-4 are within reach of a stationary hand, and that fret number 5 is generally reachable by playing the next thinner string.
