    Can i get a review from your guys?

    I just feel like i am playing in front of the beat whenever i hear the recording, but i am not sure whether i am being critical on my own playing,

    sometimes rushed sometimes dragged.
    needs tightening. the drummer's variable kick placement ain't helping.
    simplify. be accurate.

  3. I agree with the comment above. When you play those 3 same notes in a row, pay special attention to where the last one lands - Try to focus on it & make it land right on the beat, it'll help a lot.

    I don't know...maybe a little bit, but this isn't the kind of song that needs the bass behind the beat so it sounds fine to me.
