Hi, I like it. You ~may~ want to retune that bass C to a B, so you don't get overtones on all the C notes. But I was actively listening to hear what the open basses were doing resonance-wise, so I'm probably prejudiced.
Thanks David, very good point actually. Listening back I did hear a lot of things ringing until I had a chance to get it under control. I have a hunch that some of the extra unwanted resonances are not only the bass strings, but I'm not entirely sure.
I've worked on using the butt of my right hand to stop the low strings but that can throw off my position sometimes so it's not always practical.
I've considered even tuning the basses off by a semi-tone when I don't plan on using them to really keep them from causing problems. Or maybe I can devise some sort of trinket to sneak in between those strings to keep them muted.
