My good friend who I talk to almost everyday (Mononeon) is a great example of this! He uses the mistakes he makes and learns to somehow make it fit in the music or solo! Even Victor Wooten has made it clear through some of his lessons about the mistakes we make when playing bass and turning them into...well not mistakes. I am very much into experimental music like Cabaret Voltaire and so many others, that I've practiced playing random notes when improvising and this technique really works! I'm not the best bassist, but I feel like practicing this makes me better each day, but what do you guys think of this? Here is sort of an example from him: Oh and I'm glad to be back on guys, had college to worry about and couldn't make time for my bass, but now I'm back!
