Im a 18 year old player who has been playing behind with my band for about 3 years, and has been playing for 4. I've allways tried to one up myself with every song, and play to my full ability. Ive allways been self taught, and am feeling like im starting to fall behind. The band is getting very technical, and though i am keeping up with whats going on in the songs, my playing isnt branching out. Ive never had alot of bass hero's or people to introduce me to diffent types of players, so if anyone has any links to pages of exersises, and techniques for speed and dexterity, or some cool bass players to check out, who have some amazing talent, it would be greatly apriciated if you would post some links below. Im also very intrested in learning sweeps! haha thankyou for taking the time to ready this.
