  1. ...is absolutely not me.
    But still, it would be cool if you checked out my little try on Donna Lee:

    It's only the four first bars, or so. But I've been working on it for the past couple of weeks. (Those position changes are killing me) It's really on the limit of what my technique can handle. (I'll never ever learn to spell that word.) So it's not very good.
    But what do you guys think? Is it worth the struggle to get trough the rest of this song, and am I good enough?
    I've been playing bass for two years.

    Sorry about the low volume, you just have to cranck it up, I guess...
  2. Sounds good to me, although most groups don't phrase the head like that. You might wanna take some other recordings and learn to phrase it a couple of different ways because most people don't play it as 'stiff' as Jaco did. I like it both ways myself :)
  3. Thanks...
    Do you mean the fact that I play the eights straight?
    I thought the bebop guys used to play them even when it was this fast. But thanks for you advice...
