It's not so much a solo as a.. I'm not sure what you'd call, but I don't think solo is just right. http://media.putfile.com/Bass-Solol As usual, I made a few mistakes (Which only really seems to happen to that degree when I'm recording with video; otherwise it's usually much cleaner, and I can keep better "tempo consistency".), but I think it's pretty not bad for 8 months experience. I realize some of it sounds kind derived, but I can't think of anything off hand it sounds like. Here's the piece in "tab" format (and with neat MIDI sound support) if you want to try it out (remember who's it is ). http://www.activebass.com/cgi-bin/page_view.pl?l=19833&p=1&a=0 Also, how is my plucking technique? I realize it needs a fair amount of work, but is the angle I attack going to handicap me later? Its just the angle I'm comfortable with, though I do realize parallel is the most "efficient" angle (less reach). Thanks in advance.
