A little series of threads on reddit I've been doing about metal bass-playing

    What's the best reddit thread for metal?

    I don't know, but I like to think the ones I've been doing are pretty cool. I've done four so far, and will probably be doing two or three more.

    Here they are, along with the main topics:

    Part I: The Bassics - Cover the function of the bass in metal as well as the two most basic techniques used to accomplish that role.

    Part II: Gear! - Discuss mostly the P and J, with some mentions for the Stingray and the Ricky. Also I talk a bit about amps.

    Part III: Writing Basslines - Pull in the pentatonic scale and blues scale and show how to use them in a song.

    Part IV: Counterpoint - I talk about counterpoint theory and how to use it.

    I thought to repost these here in case someone here may find them useful.
