  2. Dude - you have the basics down - now go and work on your timing and some clear ideas - this wasn't good on either...try getting a simple pattern going and develop it - this didn't seem to have any connotations of a 'song' idea at all - I'll say it again - listen to what the likes of Flea or Larry Graham do - they pick a line and repeat it - create a groove and sustain it - the idea being to draw the audience into the sound and the rhythm.

    Oh yeah - practice makes perfect - don't give up.

    eh dawg - it was just aiiight for me man...it was just aiight.
    Sorry for the Randy Jackson reply; couldn't resist - but on a serious note - good attempt but urb_munki has given you the best advice ever "practice makes perfect - don't give up." thats the name of the game, keep workin' it till you got it!
     
  5. EFFECTIVE practice makes perfect IMHO ;) ;)
     
  6. You have the right idea, but think about rhythmic accuracy. Practice with a metronome/drum machine as much as possible.
