comment Buzz in the G string
+1 comment. It's all getting too serious. I thought musos had senses of humour. Wrong again...

comment Fretless bass buzz
Is this happening with all pup positions, and acoustically? It may be inconsequential, but is the intonation accurate?

comment Fretless bass buzz
At that point on the fingerboard, the 'note' trying to sound between nut and finger is close to an octave above the played note. Depending exactly where the finger is, a mm either way. There could be some sympathetic vibration going on, but it would manifest itself at the same point on other strings, too, I'd have guessed.

With all due respect, reading the wording, do you mean it buzzes behind your finger, in the part between finger and nut, or between finger and saddle? Just a thought.'Above' to me means fret 7 towards the bridge.

Welcome ! Could you expand on your question, as it isn't as clear as it needs to be (for me at least).

comment Do musicians count the meter all the time?
@PLL +1 for the analogy. We're happier in 4/4 than 5/4 because we've used it a million times more. We can relax (a bit) about it, but still need to be aware of what may be coming round the corner, though.Maybe that's why so many signal left/right even when there's no-one to tell?

@Mazura - I bet you like to be counted in at the start though !! What's wrong with Ready, steady - GO.

comment What could be the key of this chord progression?
your last comment is good, in that the song portrayed uses the Cm after C as a sort of extension, rather than staying on the C, whereas the OPs song appears to start on that Cm, with no reference to anything.
