    i am a 14 year old bass player, and there is a video of me playing on youtube. The title advertises my guitar players' newest guitar. So please check it out, and tell me what you think : )

    I am sorry the video quality sucks, just focus on the sound!

    Not bad at all. The guitar sounds a bit shrill, too much treble overall for the mix. But good playing by bass and guitar. Drumers ok to.

    Thanks darkstorm, this was recorded on a phone, and it cut out the lows on guitar and bass. Live has a better mix. Thanks for your kind words

    Thanks exidor, I originaly started playing guitar, but my band needed a bass player, so i started playing that, but i love bass so much more.

    Nice work. The guitarist's noodling seems a little aimless, though.

    Keep it up. Guitar player could turn down a bit, bring up the drums and bass.

    Thumbs up!

    Even some cams cut lows off, but I started to think whoever operatin' had some drink right before filmin' all of you:D

    Anyway you're great

    If you're born in '98, you seem to be 14 in '78 for (haircut and) the approach to both slap and progressions

    But, bein' a former guitarist, remember how you back then, and your guitar player right now (amazin' style) builds up a pedalboard, to add a few more tweakin' to the overall curve;)

  12. I'm fixin' to get ready for work, which is not musical..... but one tidbit of advice, don't worry so much about other people's approvals - and I know you;re at the age when it become paramount - but don't. You know if you are growing as a player, and really, its between you and the source, Mother Music.

    So keep on growing, inside, and dont worry so much about the outside, it will take care of itself if you are true to yourself and the Mother. ;)
