man talk about tonal difference between the 2 basses...wow
if I discovered that much of a difference, I would let the beatle bass sit in the case forever Smile

but OMG Noob, you and that thumb picking makes me cringe.. I know you dont play anything speedwise yet, and you won't be able to until you use your 2,3 fingers...but it reminds me of this guy ----

.
the songs your choosing are good, and you do a good job on them, but I guess it is just my age and the type of stuff I usually play that makes me think "why is he doing it that way"

Yeah, probably your age Laughing ... kiddin kiddin. But I do it that way because I just learned it like that. When I'll have things that require speed I'll take my 2 fingers but for the moment I use the combination that fits the song better.

I think my next jam will be a classical fingerstyle jam. I'll try to finally finish that Prelude...

Also, I do not do fast song because I don't practice my speed enough(Cause I got too much scales and arpeggios to do for school) but it will come. The more I pratice my scales the faster I do them(with a metronome).


P.S. I am not near able to do octaves patterns with my fingers only.

Man in 5 years! If I'm lucky I'll be either a studio bassist or a bassist for boat cruises!

In 9 semester(4 years and a half), I'll have a BACC in Jazz interpretation.

I just realized that in 5 years I'll freakin have finished all my studies! afro

I did the studio bassist thing for a few years in my 30's and was very happy playing "in the background", until one time the engineer said "where's your fender"... he never asked me that before in quite a few I did for him, but the band who I was playing for ( It was for a t.v. commercial ) said no fender, no job...so I walked out never to return tongue

Damn, that's harsh... No fender no job. The worst part is that it is true that if don't own at least one fender or one fender ''HIGH END'' copies you sometime don't get the job.

And that make me mad because I am not a Fender guy.

I wasn't mad at them, that's what they "wanted", and I was not able to provide it, so they got someone else.

and nothing wrong with a Fender anything, but I'll probably never own one ( I say probably, because if the price is right, I could CARE LESS what the headstock says )

I would love a bunch of Fender P's but I can't get past the neck difference from the Jacksons, and I certainly won't find a Fender for 150-200 bucks THANKS to the name.

The only thing I don't like of Fender are the necks. they are too thick. I've tried Jazz and P's numberous time but they feel like baseball bat. Too big for me.

Epiphone necks, Yamaha RBX neck are the one I need( of course my Guild too!)

But I need the thinnest possible neck. And I heard Hagstroms were good for ''too thin'' necks. I'll probably look that way sometime.

Anyway, just give me a 22-24 fret with a thin neck and I'll be in heaven!

Really? You may want to look into getting an old Kramer. My DMZ6000 has an insanely thin neck. But only 20 frets.

thin necks are the shizznit Smile

why do you think I like Jacksons stuff so much tongue

but on another note, my Kramer Forum3 also has a very thin flat-backed neck..

I had a couple baseball necks, and I only kept them around to look at..all sold now but they were pretty basses never the less.

Great videos, Noob! We just re-formatted our computer, and it took some tweaks to be able to view videos again, so I am only just now able to watch yours. Wink

I must be lucky. I have also done a $*&!load of studio work, and not once has an engineer asked me to use a Fender. Of course, most of the time I was asked to do session work, it was because whomever it was doing the project brought me in specifically for my own brand of weirdness, and it was made clear to the guy behind the board that any attempts at "creative control" would not only be unwelcome, but also punishable by flogging with a wet noodle. I do recall one tech asking if I wanted to use his Steinberger (no, not one with a trans-trem, sorry Kids), and I nicely told him that, while I appreciated the offer, it wasn't going to be the same. I then soundchecked with my Yamaha, which quickly convinced the tech that I was right. Wink

I like the fact that you're using your thumb NB, and like Mike said, keep at it, and develop it more. But you're well on your way, Bro!

I use my thumb along with my index and middle fingers to do a flamenco-style picking technique that actually works quite well. I pull this one out sometimes, and the response is usually something like "what the hell was that???" Laughing

start another thread, the list is probably 100 companies...lol

Noob has a good teacher obviously the money is paying off Smile
now if I can only get Martin to show something --- Rolling Eyes
and Eric...the Fender thing was more like " your bass is too bright don't you have a Fender with flats on it" << more like that
I turned the treble off ( ugh ), but still was not what they wanted...that was the only instance, as you said about you, they asked you to do it FOR the sound, in this case they asked me the same thing but did not prepare me or I would have said "no I do not have a bass that has that sound" in the first place.

You know, if all tech and engineers want is a simple, muddy, Precision tone, then why the frig don't they simply buy a Precision and record it themselves??? scratch At the very least, have one on hand in their studio! I mean, I would be willing to try it out if the tune really called for it.

Let me clarify that last statement. Generally, when I go into any recording project, I always ask if they want something basic and fundamental to the song....OR....if they want something different and unique with my personal signature attached to it. After all, if it's their song, and I'm just sitting in to lay the bass down for them, then I don't mind holding back. There have been times when other musicians have approached me and said "look, I know you're a monster player, but all I really want is for someone competent to lay down a basic and solid groove." That's totally fine with me, and I don't mind obliging. In fact, those sessions are some of the quickest and easiest I've ever done. Now then, if they say instead "oh, YES! Give it some whacko personality!"....well, that's a different story. At that point, I will insist that they allow me to do my thing.

In my own projects, of course, my bass is final word. If it's my band, and my music, then it will be my playing style, and my tone....otherwise you will see my arse walking out your door. Laughing

i have pretty large hands, i can't stand small bass necks, (i don't like jazz basses for that reason alone) i like a thin broad neck, looking back it's the real reason i bought a 5 string even though i never use the B.

When i started out i tried to do everything i could to escape the "normal bass" concept, but as i got a bit better and wiser, it became apparent that

a. the p-bass tone was exactly what i wanted.
B. the p-bass neck is exactly what i wanted, and
c. the p bass is all you need.

so, unwillingly i became a fender guy. I have serious G.A.S for a highway one P.

And there's nothing wrong with that. I'm a huge believer in finding what works for you, and sticking to it....although, I violate that rule constantly with all of my mad experiments! Laughing
