  1. You are an amazing bassist. Truly of Justin Chancellor status. How long have you been playing? You are simply awesome (saw video). You showed me some awesome techniques I want to mimic.

    How long did it take to write that?
  2. Thanks man. Glad you like it. :D

    I've been playing nearly 6 years now. Only been tapping for maybe 8 months though.

    Took me a few months (on and off work) to write it. I had most of the main parts written, it just took longer to arrange and figure out the little variations.

    I really like the use of chords you use.
    Especially from 3:30 - 3:55. And that high note pulloff sounded really cool (between 3:30 - 3:55).

    How do you put together your chords?
  5. Nice :) I still have the ''old'' version you posted a few months ago , but this one is much better :bassist:

    Rock on !

    You mean lokire?

  8. oops...yeah
  9. LOL Thanks buddy :D
  10. Thanks. That's my favorite part too.

    I just mess around with stuff untill I find something I like. I've always liked weird, dissonant chords so I'll just put a bunch of notes together and see how they sound sometimes. I don't really know any chord theory.

    Hey that's pretty nice. It wanders a little for sections, and personally I'd truncate parts of it make it into a more cohesive song, but there are some nice ideas and some good playing(for the most part) But overall, not bad.

    You sound a lot like me. I don't know a whole lot of chord theory. Just my modes and have tried to play a bunch of different stuff. But I'll come up with a nice chord. Then I'll work around it.

    I sometimes go a little over board and the song becomes a mess of of different chords. Other times the song may wander but I'm starting to learn to focus on what the song is all about. I find listening to what you've created helps your composition a lot.
