Hi, I've made a couple posts here in the past but I have to admit I'm not a regular visitor. I hope to come here more frequently in the future though because I think it's about time I started getting tips from other bassists instead of guitarists.
Currently, I've been hitting modes pretty hard in an effort to learn my fretboard a whole lot better. I hope to pick up some good exercises for doing that after I post this and figure out Which forum would be best for it.
My writing partner (who is just as Novice to his guitar as I am my bass) and I just finished another song recently and I'd like some heavy criticism.
Here's the song: http://soundcloud.com/endureth/do-it-again
Some questions I'd like you to consider while listening:
1. At any time did you think the bass was playing too busy or 'trying to show off'?
2. Did the groove make you move?
3. Did you feel the bass was too loud or boomy in the overall mix?
Sorry for the questions, but my goal here is to learn, become better, and discover any unknowns I don't know yet about crafting lines (which I'm sure there are lots of those).
Thanks for any advice. Now to find the proper forum looking for mode exercises.
