RUNNING WITH THE DEVIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To begin, do you have a tuner? If so, tune it...
Its important to have a bass that is in tune, so you know what a good in-tune bass sounds like...
next, if you have a metronome, or even if you dont, start playing an open string to the beat...
make sure to keep it even, alternating fingers with your thumb on something (preferably a pickup or if your pickus are deep set you can use the neck, but that would be kinda wierd) also, make sure you dig in quite a bit... when you pluck the bass strings, it shouldnt feel like a brush... with a brush youll get a "doo doo doo" sound... what most players are looking for, is more of a "doom doom doom" sound... this involves more pull and less frailness... try to do exactly what your thinking... place the notes.. dont guess them... just be... um.. consise...
you can speed up or slow down or do whatever you want... but try to keep it constant...
i suggest buying a book... a certan book called "the evolving bassist" by rufus ried... you will learn not only the musical aspect of playing the bass, but correct technique and edicate, as well as theory and intervals... definitely a book thats well worth the cost if used correctly...
have fun.. play safe...
and what the heck kinda bass is it anyways? pics?
Make a thread advertising that you just got a new....
oh wait... nevermind. I have no clue what you should do.
Find an instructor!
Look here, I'm gonna pistol-whip the next person that says, "shenanigans".
