Well ive been playing to drum beats lately as ive been invited into a few bands, because my town is bassist free. But ive come across a problem which i believe is just because im inexperienced and i was wondering if u guys could offer me any advice on it. So yea im playing 4/4 drum beats, pretty basic, i play my quarter notes perfectly could play the entire song like that. However when i try to play an 8th note or a 16th note i always seem to muck up, or play way off beat. Or in some cases i just play them as a quarter note. Is there a way you can practice playing 8th notes so they actually remain on beat. I play simple roots and basslines by the way, its what the people want though. But i dont even think i can play a bar of 8th notes. I believe its just practice but yea, offer some help if u can. Otherwise u can tell me off for writing such a stupid thread. Doesnt bother me.. thanks dudes and dudets?
