A Bump in the Road
When I started playing the noter way I had trouble getting over the frets I didn't want to play on my way to the fret I did want to play...w/o the noter going bumpbumpbump. In fact I took off my 6+ fret for while. They are so close together and I couldn't differentiate between the two.
One day I was pondering this conundrum and came to mind the movie Bloodsport.....the part where the karate guy breaks bricks...not all of them....just the one on the bottom of the stack.
Somehow this analogy freed me from the physical, the technical, aspect of producing the sound and allowed me to just go for it. I wasn't immediately relieved of the bumpbump but I didn't dwell on it anymore and it went away on it's own....& I put the 6+ fret back on!
