    download a demo version of cool edit pro - you`ll be able to see if your timing is ok - just record yourself and zoom the tracks of the beat and your bass:)

    The metronome is important, but using it effectively requires a little thought. Ed Friedland suggests setting the 'nome at 40 and then play 8 notes per beat. This is effectively playing 16ths in cut time. This has helped me play 16ths more evenly. Start with the click on beats 1 and 3, and then try the more difficult exercise of using the clicks as the 2 and 4 backbeat.
