    Watch me playing Dream On by Aerosmith. I might have made 1 or 2 mistakes. But i'd say this was a pretty good bass cover.

  3. Nice cover, bro.

    Here's the criticism:

    Dream On is an example of a bassline where less equals more. If you understand this concept more, then you'll take more time to actually focus on your fundamentals instead of trying to be able to show off. I say this because I see a lot of beginning musicians (and I did it myself) want to play as fast as they can instead of as accurate as they can.

    Great advice, I can only agree. I remember a few years ago trying to improvise through things all I could, trying to "make it better" but I realize now I was only making it worse.
    Not that I noticed you doing this much but it's good advice nonetheless.
