    Hi. I did a competition in Canada and i won the 2nd prize. I'm playing 3 of my bass solo songs.

    1 - La Péripétie Partie I
    2 - La Péripétie Partie II
    3 - Tapistic

    Please let me know what you think of them! Watch the video!

    you can email me some cool comments even in my email adress

    and if you want me to open up a show let me know hehehe
    Thank you!
  2. Was it a competition only for bassists or just music in general?

    Anyway, it sounds awesome to me. It made me get more motivated to get better and develop as a player. I want to be able to play stuff like that as well.

    And also, what did you say to the audience?

    No it was a Talent show were people had to show their originality, talent and motivation in the art they perform.

    To the audience I said :" Most of you probably think that a bass player is a dude in a background who plays low notes... well i'm gonna show you that Bassists dont have to always stick in the background..."

    Thank you for your comments!

    Great stuff man. You're a real showman. It was actually entertaining to watch and musical at the same time. I honestly didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did. Tres bon! It's great to see you doing your thing and doing it your way.

    Oh yeah, one more thing. Take what you have and find a great teacher who'll show you some more advanced harmonic theory. That'll put your playing to the top.

    One MORE thing. Go out and buy Charles Mingus's "Ah Um".

    I really liked it. I found it quite amusing and original (It sounds like the crowd enjoyed it too).

    BTW, your right hand slapping technique is not very usual.
  14. Great stuff man - I could critise the musical content but that's beside the point - you put on a great show and any band would be lucky to have you as their bassist - I echo what EmJazz said above - get with a good bass teacher and get into some music theory - especially some jazz chords and melodies - as your technique is pretty good already - well done on coming 2nd too - good work for just playing some solo bass!
