    There's nothing like thinking your the dogs bollox and then hearing something that makes you realise is leagues above and beyond anything you'd ever considered playing. :(
    This moring I heard a song called "Sweet" by Lamb (second rate trip-hop outfit)
    Admitedly it's not a good song by anyone's stretch of the imagination. But it's a killer bass line. :bassist: It's a shame the rest of the song is not up to that standard.
    I then spent about three hours with my bass on my lap and my ear glued to a speaker as I tried to figure it out. I'm not quite there but if you can nail this, and some of those fills, you're a better player than me.

    It made me feel like the very first day that I took up bass rewinding cassettes over and over again to figure out those Nirvana parts. :crying:
