I'm pretty new around here and kinda new to this bass malarky, but i'm addicted already... The thing is i'm really not that great and the books i have are okay but a bit annoying..i get tabs off the net to play some songs and make up fairly simple stuff for our band, but are there any like, I dunno, favourite scales that are really good to practice or and songs that are really good at getting you to play faster than a lame snail...the extent of my bass skill at the mo is Narcolepsy by third eye blind to give you all an idea. Not terrible but not exactly knock you out fab. And no I can't afford proper lessons. Don't be mean in your replies i ain't been playing long! Any hints/tips apart from the obvious like, PRACTICE! Cheers y'all!
