    Good job! I love the blues and its a great way to learn bass. Check out the books, "What Duck Done" and Ed Friedland's book, "Blues Bass" for some really good information on the subject. Also, I don't know if your teacher has you working with a metronome, but it will really help get you deeper in the pocket. Keep up the good work! :bassist: :)

    I liked it, but i'd like to suggest an improvement video wise...
    It's usually best to record sound DI'ed into your pc or laptop. Better quality of sound for a more high quality video.

    Other than that I'd say it was nice :)

    You'll probably get more feedback if you post your clips in 'Recordings' rather than OT.

    You're playing the roots of each of the chords on the second beat of the bar - that's unusual in the blues. Is that the way the song was originally done or are you experimenting a bit?

    Technique wise, your time is coming along quite nicely. Maybe one next thing to work on is to make each note last for its full duration of one beat to get the feel a little smoother. And pay close attention to the balance of forces between your fretting fingers and plucking fingers to get a nice "round" full note with no buzz.

    Also try to avoid using open strings.

    Why? There's nothing wrong with using open strings, as long they're under control.

    Yeah, I know. I'm just saying if it's something you end up wanting to pursue further, those are some good resources.
