hello. i have a bit of a problem. i tend to be a speed freak when i play. i'm very fast with my fingers, and rarely use a pick. last year when i was in jazz band at my school, i had problems slowing down. i found it hard to keep a beat while playing slowly, which is really the essence of playing bass-keeping a beat. any suggestions? if you're going to tell me to practice at it, i'm already doing that. thanks.
