Ideas for putting together a bass playing demo / showreel
Just getting some ideas on putting together a short audio demo of my rather average bass playing! Really for the purposes of answering ads and possibly playing with others. Thought that I'd need to show technique, musicality and some knowledge of music theory in there.
After thinking about my options, I think that it might be best to lay down a series of chord progressions over several types of beats (styles I'm interested in, eg, funk, jazz, some rock and pop) to show technique, ability to do changes and most importantly, technique as relevant to that style. I've got all the relevant tools at home, eg, chordbot, reason 5, keyboard if I need to play any parts, and a micro br which I can record into.
What are your thoughts on putting together a demo?
