My first bass comp.....

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by screamingdaisy, Oct 21, 2005.

  1. It's intentionally ambient, so don't expect me to be rockin' out or anything.....


    There's two glaring mistakes in it, but I was doing this for fun so I didn't feel the need to clean them up.

    How's the tone?

    Other comments?

    Cheers. :)

    P.S. - it's 100% done on a bass.....
  2. its pretty cool, i think a nice melody or solo would be cool, but otherwise, pretty cool!
  3. First 45 seconds were great. However, it became a bit monotonous after that.
  4. Melody.....there's the reason I play rhythm insturments.... :smug:

    Sometimes I agree, but others I like the monotony. I had an idea in my head earlier today, but I lost it. I'll just have to wait until something else comes along. I'd like to build it into a 4 to 5 minute soundscape, but until some more ideas come along I'll consider this a work in progress.

    Thanks for the compliment though. :)
  5. well, although ambient music does become a bit monotonous, even a slow solo would open up the compostion imo :)

  6. I think I'll ask a friend to lay some ambient melody over it.....just to see where he takes it. :)

    There's a reason I gave up on being a lead guitarist....I suck ass at phrasing. ;)
