    I would really appreciate some honest opinions about my playing ability. Please listen to this sample I put together - even a simple "not bad" or "needs work" would be helpful.

    There's 3 parts: the first and last lines are a couple of old favorites, while the middle is an impromptu piece w/ me and a drum machine.

    It's just a 1 and a half minute recording using a Jazz bass and a bit of chorus on an old 4 track.
    Also, keep in mind that I don't read music at all.

  2. I like it, the second half of the middle bit is good and I think it's pretty good playing. But what do I know, I've only been playing since August. :)

    I liked both of them.Nothing wrong with 'em.I really liked that harmonics part,you should do that more.In the second part the chorus made it sound really good.The third part was a nice little groove.Keep it up,you rock.
  4. Good, except you might want to work on a few things...
    In the first part you kind of got of rhyhtm and it sounds like you're digging in a little too much in some parts. Some of the notes you played also didn't ring out all the way, but good stuff!
