    Modes
     
  5. At work it would be the ins & outs of UL Standards 2161 (midpoint grounded transformers) and UL 48 (electric sign standards).

    For basses it would be lamination techniques and some vibrating string stuff as it relates to bass design.

    Pretty dry stuff actually.

    I began learning a violin suite in E minor a bit ago, but quite because I just finished up a cello suite in G major the week before, and I didn't feel like immersing myself in another exhuasting piece like that, but now I'm fresh again, and plan on going after the violin suite again starting Monday.

    edit: after reading my post, I realize that I've made one of the biggest run on setences of this century. Ahh well, I'm to lazy to change it. :D
     
  14. Well, I was working on Classical Thump a couple months ago, but I put that down for a while and haven't picked it up since, I guess I should sometime when I'm bored or something.

    Right now, I'm just working on playing interesting basslines and singing at the same time, something hard for me to do, so hopefully I'll get it eventually because I've recently been put on backup vocals for my band (useless info, I know.).

  16. I've been spending a lot of time working on my reading in order to learn to become a better sight reader. In the process, one of the books-- of many-- I've been reading from is "The Slap Bass Bible" by Anthony Vitti. This, in turn, has also helped me with my slap technique. I've also spent some time programming rhythms on my drum maching in order to jam with said slap grooves which, in turn, has helped me to better understand the role of the drummer/bass player as a unit. It's great when one goal can lead to improvement in other areas.;)

    Well, right now I've been focusing on modes, playing them in two octaves, and chords. Harmonization of the major scale, etc.

    Also, reading chord charts, jazz improvisation, and writing basslines to melodies. Very important at this moment because I might be in a jazz band.

    Song I am currently trying to learn on my own is the bassline to Vic Chesnutt's "Little Vacation". It's a great little song to learn if you like walking basslines. :)
     
  20. i just finished "pretty little ditty" by the chili peppers and im moving on to "classical thump" b victor wooten, its in rough shape right now.:(
