So i just uploaded a video of me playing one of my favorite songs and i want some input about my tone. Im just using the p pickup on my bass because the j makes it a bit too twangy for my tastes. Tips and suggestions are welcome.

Rump, a P-bass delivers a rump in the sound such that, similar to the rump on an African American woman, it is the highlight of the tone.

camera mic probably doesn't help, but cool unintentional simpsons intro

I'd say pretty average.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

It's ok.

BTW your playing that song all wrong.

EDIT:
Oh and cut your excess string from your tuning posts.

In the end, the only question is: what bass would Jesus play?

I think he's a Fender Jazz guy.

Pretty meh, but you should look for a better version of that song, you're pretty off.
Also please cut the ends off your strings, it looks silly IMO

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

I am not sure but I don't believe that all 4 strings are strummed for the double-stops.
