    I just layed this down in about two hours or so.
    It's kind of sloppy and I'm no drummer but I had a lot of fun doing it.
    It's essentially a sound test for my Squier Vintage Modified Precision V that I just got two days ago.


    I have this lame habit of giving my songs name of animals in Japanese.
    This one I decided to call 'Haiiro no Inu' or 'Gray Dog' just because I was inspired by my Miniature Schnauzer as I was playing.
    She would try to jump up on my lap and I'd say, "Saddie, get down. I'm shredding sweet licks." :bassist:

    Anyways, it's just drums and bass.
    Every bass sound you hear is from my Squier.

    Worth noting:
    The little "solo" in the song is the bass without any effects. Just some added volume.
    The other bass sounds are going through a compressor and an EQ. (Or something like that.)
    I'm running stock strings and stock everything else.

    Thanks for indulging me.
    I hope I at least brought a little joy to your ears. :)

    I could not find a decent ride sound.
    Hi-hat was okay, but no rides, no crash...
    The cymbal options are really limited on that program I think.
    Also, I'm afraid the drums are a little louder than they should be.
    Still learning this stuff. :rolleyes:

    Hey, pretty neat.
    I like how you, essentially, demonstrate "both P bass voices," the adrker one, and the brighter one. Cool.

    Sounds great. What program are you using? Find a better one haha. With better drum sounds and the like, produce it up really nice with some other instruments programmed in maybe. Mostly just keep writing songs though IMO.
