How do I view left-handed diagrams?
Lessons don't use my favorite tuning.
Only the number of strings from this setting is applied to the lesson and exercise diagrams.
Showing fingerings in every possible tuning would be very difficult in terms of structuring the lessons and curricula.
I can’t see the diagram well. Can I change it?
Yes. You might try the other backgrounds (fret wood color) of Maple or Rosewood. In your account, go to “Change My Settings” and select a new color.
If the text is too big or too small, try using CTRL & + or CTRL & - to resize. I made the font bigger on purpose knowing many of you are sitting at a distance holding a bass in your hands.
