    Couple of peepz on TB asked me how my Zon sounds.. Well


    Visit here to hear my sounds!


    Yes, it sucks! I screwed up all over the place :( Thats what you get for being a sucky bass player

    PS: I've only been playing for 30 MONTHS. Don't be mistaken by years :) I also do NOT know any theory at all and never taken lessons ;( no wonder i suck :D

    Comments are welcomed :D
  2. I've been playing for 4 years, and that's a lot better than I can do!

    As a fellow Sonus Special owner (mine's fretless), I love the tone as well. :)

    you suck!!!!
    worst bassist ever!

    j/k. i love the marios bros stuff. your a funny guy :p
  6. Yeah, DM. I'd love a Sonus Custom fretless 5 or 6, but I should really work on my playing. For instance, your slap playing is simply light years beyond anything I can do! Zons are indeed awesome instruments though, and I'll probably stick with Zon for all fretless purposes. If I ever get good enough to warrant getting one, I think Sadowsky will get my nod for fretted instruments....

    Of course, those are just pipe dreams at this point.

    hahaha my slapping?? light years?? HAHAHHAH!!! You've got to be kidding me... I suck at slapping!! ask Peter McFerrin!! he saw me :p
  8. Man, you'll just have to trust me here. I can hardly get a decent sound when I slap, and I'm certainly nowhere near that fast! If I were anything more than a bedroom bassist, maybe I'd be more inspired to truly work on getting better!

    I wish I have more time ot practice.. i have no time almost... working kills me.. i only get to practice like 10 minutes every 2 days :(
  10. We're exactly the opposite. I've now got plenty of time, but no motivation. :)

    You still sound pretty good with a minimum of practice though, I must say.
  11. Also noticed you mentioned a Legacy Elite 4 -- there's one up on bassgear.com right now for $1600 or so with a Koa top. Figured I should give you the heads-up!

    DM: I agree with Da5id HeX... your slap isn't bad at all... I play bass since 1998 Summer (4 years...) and I don't think my slap is better than yours...

    You're being too modest about your playing. You don't suck. If you say that, you haven't heard people who TRULY suck.

    Mmm... Zon. *drool*

    i am sorry for asking this and don't take this as a n00b question.
    what is the slap riff from?
    can i get some tabs for that?
    i just can't play that by ear.
    * looks around**hides in the corner because embaresed* that is spelled wrong!
