    Hi everyone, I'm new to videoing myself, but thought i would share this clip of me playing. The bass is a 1990 Warwick Streamer Stage I, modded with Nordstrand Big singles and a Aguilar obp-3 Pre-amp.

    Let me know what you think, im just improvising and playing about with some chords and idea's.

    Cheers.

     
  2. Very nice man! Dig the bass. I'm not much for chording but you do it really well. Very melodic. Great job

    Love it! You have so much effortless speed. Especially on those descending runs. Care to share how how u developed this? :)

    Thanks for the compliments :) I guess I developed the speed by just practicing scales and arpeggios with a metronome and gradually building up the tempo, but its not something i really do anymore, i tend to just noodle and feel my way around the bass!

    Great playing, I really enjoyed your use of chords, I've been working on that myself.

    Nice! Your improvisation skills are terrific. I like your chord voicings! Have you done a solo recording other than just youtube videos?
