    honestly, I played when I was 10-15 and now I'm 42. I attached a clip. Many thanks for the listen and possible critique on playing and what I'm technically doing wrong?

    lol.... I know that too well. I am too old to be bothered about negative reviews. Seriously, if it's a bad critique at least explain why or how I can better myself.

    But that post was funny! Very true though. I've changed the original bass line not to much, but a little. I am curious though :)

    OK. The busy drum part is not a match for the languid bass part. They don't really go together at all. If that was my drummer, I'd tell him to calm the hell down.

    Pretty much. Playing's fine. Like the low B-including melody. It's clever and interesting.

    When I mute the hats it seems less head wrecking!

    I didn't mind the busy drums with the bass line in that section. I found it interesting and have heard pieces like that.

    I could point out some timing issues, but overall I thought it was creative. It's not an overly busy bass piece, but it doesn't need to be. That's all I have for 'technical critique'. Nothing is overtly "wrong" imo.

    My feedback is: Keep doing more. Learn more music theory to help support your creativity and use the small compositions to explore.

    EDIT: I also like and respect saabfender's opinion, I just disagree.

    Thanks for the feedback! I amended the bass-line a little and practiced it to tighten it up. I will post the entire song here soon and put the guitars and stuff in the back so you guys can hear the bass. The feedback was very helpful.
