    What's with the wonky right hand technique?
  3. That is a strange right hand. Don't wanna critise him as he is good but not really anything too special ...

    Umm... dude... You thinkin whos that hidden talent? ... Everybody can notice its you... i hope you were joking. And what comes to the playing part, that talent needs more exercise :ninja:

    Sorry for being a**hole :)
  5. Either the sound is way out of sinc with the video, you have a looper, or you were trying to mimic a track playing in the background. Either way it wasn't that good.

    ow ow. All that criticism for just a little joke. I thought I used some emoticon to point that out, but I forgot.

    It isn't a track or a looper. I played it live, but youtube seems to hold on to the video part while the track is 2 seconds ahead. (or the other way)

    It's just a warming up I like to do. Also my very first bass video. And the wonky right hand technique is a double thumb I think. Makes a crazy sound. You got to pay attention to the part where I play the first riff. I showed the riff slow, than I build it up. You hear the difference whether it's a single thumb or or a double thumb. (I now, it's not the double thumping technique, but I make it clear now I think. Maybe it's just called a double slap - or is it a pop when you use your thumb-) This isn't a video showing off my skills, just my warming up. If a would try to show off I played something easy and played that right. I would record it over and over again untill the point where there's no mistake.

    I'll put my forgotten emoticon at the right place.
