    Wow. How long have you been playing?
  6. Nice and solid playing. I don't like the tone too much though.

    @jebersole! thanks man, i've been playing for around 11 years!

    @eukatheude, cheers! the tone isnt perfect in this vid, it's not a direct-in soundcard thing, just the audio picked up from the amp into the iPhone camera! working on better sound for future videos!

    Cheer's for watching guys!

    Thanks dude.
    I can only say that it's just endless hour's of practice and a lot of listening! (listening is definitely more important) but make sure you do a lot of both, on a regular basis! :)
  12. Now that's some GROWL! Very skillful, I enjoyed it.

    That's some very good playing there, young man! Really enjoyed it. I'd like to find some backing tracks for my own practice.

    Cheers Mike! You can find the same backing track and more on spotify! (just search 'practice-tracks' and look for the bass albums) Covering all styles to jam along with, its great for creating your own bassline's on the spot, and kind of prepares you for doing a studio session in whatever style you choose :)
