    Here is a new tune I've worked on.. its my personal favorite. Used my Zon Sonus 5 tuned to C# F# B E A using 45-135s. If you guys can give me some opinion/feedbacks

    Yes I know its repetitive but I did the constructive progression. Just add more on top. Everything was on bass except for the drums and the chime sound

    Enjoy guys!

    I agree. Nice use of sounds, and the tone is pretty sweet.

    My only suggestion is to maybe fade it in so it's not quite as repetitive before the rest of the tracks kick in. But, that is a very minor point purely to give a little feedback on construction. Once everything kicks in, it doesn't sound repetative at all, though.

    I think it's a nice slow build up throughout the song. I don't think it was too repetitive at all, I was still wanting it to go on when the track ended. The sounds you used were cool too. Nice tune man. :)

    Actually, going back and listening again, I don't know what I was thinking of when I said it needed to fade in.

    Apparently, my brain at work was thinking about the 4 times I had to stop the recording to answer the phone, and start over.

    I take back my idea about fading it in.
  7. nice.

    in a way it's a bit similar to the solo stuff I'm trying to do- eg. "Fluxivity" which is on the Talkbass station and has a vaguely similar minor ascending/descending lead line.
    only I use less refined tones from cheap passive basses :oops:

    Thats brilliant?
    Do you think you could do it live with a looper?
    How many layers does the song have?

    Once again thats a fantastic tune

    thanks you two..

    PS: i am working on another tune at the moment.. hopefully the vocalist from our band (TOBER) can put something over it...

    I love the tone I put out myself but I can't last playing a 5 string.. I wish I had a 4 string of my Zon Sonus Special
