    I don't know what you're expecting people to tell you to improve on. It was pretty much a strictly noodling video. If you want advice for what to improve on play some stuff that you'd actually play outside the bedroom. I'm not criticizing you for noodling, it's just that there's not much advice to be given about that, except don't do it at a wedding gig or anything :)

    I enjoyed it. A little rough at spots, but a hell of a lot better than I could do. Good job!

    thx for comments guys, I love my tuning very much,,, and I'm probably gonna do almost exactly the same thing for my band's upcoming gig at my high school..
    -- Im kinda known as the 'bass guy' in my school, so while guitarists are tuning and the drummer's resting, I'll do that solo and waste about 5 minutes of the set time... lol

    You're definately on your way.

    2 suggestions though. get back to accuracy, and maybe get a P bass w dimarzio model P and rotosound strings installed. You'll find it alot easier.

    all in all, very enjoyable!

    lol, Kiwi Kid, you are hilarious... NOT!!!

    Im not trying to be Billy Sheehan... I can't really find my own style right now cause I've only been playing for 2 years,, ahh, watever.
  12. I dont really like the sound or style, but thats just me, cause im stupid. I can tell that u are really awesome, and i enjoyed watching it never the less. I hope i can play like that in 2 years:O
  13. Haha u gotta tell me how u started out learning bass, so i can do that myself in a years time:D
  14. Yup definitely some Billy Sheehan in there. I just love that bending harmonic thing you do--very hip! :)

    Don't lie. You're a billy sheehan wanna be.

    Anyway, I take back what I said.

    You stink...

    The first thing that I'd improve is the camera work.

    Other than that I can't really tell you much. I'm with Bardolph that you should post something that you actually play out. If you want advice on that specifically then I can't help you much as that isn't the style of music that I would ever listen to. From something like that it's hard to get a clear picture of your ability.
  17. This thread is getting good now! *Sits back and watches*

    It wasn't the greatest, but it kept me entertained.

    How about putting all those things you can do together, composing something, and playing something which actually goes forward instead of random riffs? It would sound good if it wasn't completely random stuff...

    Not bad..

    My suggestion.. Shoot the camera man =P

    I do agree however on trying to make something out of it.
  20. Enjoyed it every bit... But then again, I too am very guilty of being a 'noodler'.... not to be confused with a 'ca-noodler' which is... well, not an appropriate term to be using... lol, j/k.

    NIce skills man, seriously, I liked the video.
