    Hello, this is my first post/thread, but I've been lurking around for a while and gathering knowledge from the forum. I've been playing bass daily for 6 years now and a few months ago I started working with pedals and piccolo strings. I also started recording my work to share with others and hopefully change the image of my school's music program (which is relatively underwhelming at the moment). I've had some problems with technique and timing in the past, so I would appreciate any criticism that more experienced players can offer. Thanks!

    I like what I heard. I would have liked to hear more upper register melody lines. Isn't that the whole idea of piccolo strings?

    Yes, typically piccolo strings are used for the higher register. I'll incorporate that into my next video. Thanks for the feedback!

    Nice. How would chords sound with that, and a bit of cod fretless sliding.
    Like your playing.

    Thumbs up to your playing. What pedals did you use?

    My board consists of a Boss Looper, Soundblox Manta, MXR Chorus, TC Octaver, and Reverb is built into my Roland travel amp

    If anyone who sees this wouldn’t mind commenting on my other thread with slap bass, that’d be much appreciated as well.

    Really great playing. You obviously have a lot of knowledge concerning bass technique, chord scale relationships, and effects usage. Continue your study.

    If I were your instructor, I would ask you to consider how you accent your bass and melody lines. You can really make music sing with proper understanding of what notes should be accented, vs which should be unaccented.

    Great job. Keep it up.

    I love it. Wonderful economy of time, and super stylish too.
