well, u should learn a scale or 2. then use that to make some cool bass runs up the neck. and maybe if u got something cool at the top of the neck, move it down and maybe you might get a better sound. just mess ariund till you get something. if you know how to slap, add that in there.

Watch John Entwistle's solos from 5:15 off youtube... they're just bass n' drums, and you can probably learn them by ear

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

I don't really understand why basses have 24 frets, I mean, I've never seen a bassist playing more than the 12 fret.
