    The drumbeat was harder to work on on my Alesis than the bass solo was to play :smug:

    Sorry about the crap audio, it recorded almost perfect but when I imported into Movie Maker it crapped it up somehow *shrugs*

    And btw: I'm no great player, and I don't expect you to tell me I am either. I want you to tell me how I can improve - I've not been playing 2 years yet and I'm entirely self taught so I'm sure I've picked up on too many bad habbits already :scowl: :(
  2. I think you've already got a good sense of groove.

    It's usually the other way around when i see videos of people playing, but i thought your slapping sounded tighter than your fingerstyle playing.

    I suggest working on your fills and maybe playing along a metronome. Still, that was a good job. Keep on practicing

    Mate I really dug that, you've got some feel & groove goin on there with good direction in your playing. Especially if you've only been playing 2 years. And good choice of song!!

    You can always get rid of bad habits... I'd recommend getting a good teacher tho.
