sorry, my termanology is bad there. ive only started playing bass, and have learnt about 5 easy songs (steady as she goes, teddy pickers, are you gonna be my girl, lostand found, comfort in sound, ruby) so now im learning everythings magic by AVA. im fine until this point:

Chorus
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--3333333333333333-------------------------------------- --888888888-|
E|------------- ----5555555555555555-3333333333333333-1111111----------|

where im really struggling to get the speed with the fingers or a pick. whats the best advice for getting it rythmetic?only a metromone?

metronome (or playing along with powertab/guitar pro) is really the only way, yeah. Start slow, work up to the proper speed of the piece.

Practice always helps-don't expect to be able to do stuff immediately, it does take an annoying amount of work.

You don't need a software, a simple metronome, and hours upon hours of practice is all you'll ever need.

Always remember to alternate by the way.
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

I've listened to the song, and I don't see how you CAN'T play it - it's not fast at all. unless I'm listening to a slow version or something...


But anyways, just keep practicing along with the song. You'll get it eventually.

warm up....

start slow and then pick up speed
w/o bass n drums, there wouldn't really be rock music.

Schecter is pronounced 'Shek-ter', right? I don't want to walk in and say, "Hey, can I try out that Sketcher?" and have the helper reply with "Wtf, we don't sell shoes!"

What technique are you using? If you're using your fingers, try to use two at a time.

No wonder you can't play it. I couldn't fret the 1st fret of the E string and the 8th fret of the A string at the same time, either!

PS Does this help?

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..

what the other guy said about the metranome and if you are having trouble going from 1 on the E string to 8 on the A string you could go to 3 on the D string because 3 on the D string and 8 on the A string are both F note to make things alittle easier and compact.
