    Well? what do you guys think?

  2. Not bad. I assume you are a beginner? Nice tone. I see it's a Jazz but sounds like a Precision. Main thing is to relax and get it to feel a little better-you rush things here and there. But not bad at all.:bassist:

    thanks. yeah ive only been playing for about a year and a half with sparse lessons. as for the tone, all i did was turn my neck pup off and roll my tone all the way down
  4. What is the new recording program you are using?

    Sounds good, like the tone. Like dmusic said, you seem to push things here and there, but overall it is good!

    Keep going!
  5. Next, may I suggest 'I Want You Back' by the Jackson 5. Keep at it, it only gets better from here.

    Ableton Live. It's really quite versatile.

    I posted on your video Stewart. and yes it does sound good, and would "catch" my ear if I was scrolling I'll be there videos.

    I am also a lefty, and IMO if dmusic148 has motown madness for you to play DON'T do I want you back...EVERYONE does that The Love You Save instead like I did...why?... to be noticed and not in the SEA of 1000's of covers from people who do IwantYouBack.

    How you been playing man? I like it. Tone is lovely.As was said somethings are a bit rushed and maybe just getting your left hand stronger would be good but the groove, timing, feel are great and theres some nice ghost notes in there too. Well done!
  9. Use that pinky, buddy, :D Your hand is a bit too slanted with not enough arch at your index.
