I love listening to my role models.... Flea, Claypool, Stu Hamm, and more but sometimes, more often than not they really discourage me. I have no natural talent in music and i have been playing for almost 3 years and i still suck. I have to work really hard at everything I do on my bass. Its not that I want pity I just want to know if anybody else gets discouraged this bad, I mean sometimes i want to not even bother. Do you guys get discouraged by listening to people that are that good? Because it really gets me down.
