Well I might as well do one of these posts as well. I'd like to get some feedback on my playing in my band's recording's. The link to our myspace is in my sig. I want to see how my feelings on where I need to improve my playing line up to what other, more experienced bassist, think. I know for playing for a year and some change I'm not doing too bad. At the time of the recording I'd been playing for approximately eight months and the band had had a total of a dozen practices. So it's not as tight as it would be if we recorded it now. Gear I recorded with: MIM Jazz Deluxe strung with DR Sunbeams on everything but the song "Worm of the Dust" on that song I used my Sammick P-bass copy with fender flatwounds. I ran DI through my Peavey Nitro bass head. My issues that I hear from my playing. -Timing is off in parts of songs. I need more TLC with the metronome. -Tuning is slightly off in some parts. No excuse. -In some songs I feel I don't take full advantage of the free space thats left for me. The song "Threeve" for instance I could do a more melodic part to fill up the spaces durring the verse(which I'm working on now). -Staying too root centric and doubling guitar more than I probably should. -Not enough consistancy with attack and note length. Any feedback is much appreciated. And before it is said...I fully understand the value lessons would bring to me and I'm going to be trying to rectify that situation very shortly.
