Now that my website is up and running, I took the liberty of uploading my bass recordings onto it... which is a lot by now! So can you please listen to a few of them and tell me your opinions and feedback? I did this all on my Ibanez BTB405QM, occasionally through a Boss ODB-3 and CEB-3. I multi-tracked most songs, and the "guitar" solos... are just bass with the ODB-3 on and the treble cranked. As you can tell, I'm into making actual songs, not just soulless wankfests. As well, I really like guitar solos! So please check the songs out at www.cartoonsafari.com/slava/media.htm - my personal web site. Cartoon Safari is the name of my band, and we'll have sound clips up shortly! My personal favorites are: Jet Stream, Butterflies, Inner Circle and Black Mountains. And yes, "Blackened" is indeed a crappy cover of the Metallica song! Thanks in advance!
