GnR would be cool, if not only for the chance to play with bumblefoot.
or Steve Vai, that'd be a good gig.
Also, cool thread idea.
We have one. Although we want two. But we should stick to the topic.
I have the same bass and had the same problems with low notes sounding really bland. What I normally do is keep the second nob that controls the pick-up blenidng all the way down, or mostly down, and keep the low end EQ on the bottom of the of the pot-pan no more than halfway up.
Really, I think it's the jazz pick-up that does most of it, it will suck a lot of tone out of your bass if you try to max it out with the precesion.
Unfortunately, you can't mute the P pup and just go solo on the jazz. That would make it a lot better, IMO. You can only add Jazz, not take away precesion.
Fair enough, but it is good to have the knowledge of scales, so you know why things work.
Hardly a bass solo.
Learning an already composed solo won't really improve your soloing capacity. I recommend learning scales and arps, and how the notes relate to each other.
Goddamn that Stiletto 6-string is looking so sexy.
Don't mean to hijack the thread, but should one study more theory to be able to utilize a 6-string effectively? I like the idea of having extra range and all that, but my theory knowledge is little to none, and I can see how that may be detrimental.
Why does musiciansfriend no longer carry them? I find it very odd.
id say no. lotta potential for damaging circuitry with low frequencies
I listened on their site http://line6.com/variaxbass/movies.html and i like all the sounds.Do they actually sound like that?
I plugged my ipod into my mates computer once, to get some of his songs...
When he took my ipod out the dock my ipod froze... i held menu and the centre button, and all my music had gone, and it had put his library on
Q-tron FTW!!! (the one Bootsy uses I believe)
Seriously, it is 'the' envelope filter. Very few come close to the sound it makes.
because i really dont want a very low end bass, just a decent one. aren't roland cubes guitar amps tho?
http://www.good-ear.com/ is a good site to start learning to "hear" chords and intervals.
Playing by ear starts by hearing intervals. Playing your scales in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6ths and 7ths can help.
When transcribing or learning a new song "by ear", the best advise I ever received was to use the most accurate instrument I owned--my own voice, first. I find if I "sing" the part first and then try to pick the notes out on an instrument, its a much shorter path than going straight to the instrument of choice.
i've been thinking of modding the bass with clearer pickups, perhaps humbuckers and the works. I forgot to mention. i have the choice between a les paul special bass and a nikki sixx. i'm leaning towards the nikki sixx because the growling sound is what i'm looking for. or close to it.
aye, fast doesn't always mean good in Death Metal... Shaun Malone doesn't shred it up all the time, but damn is he schmexy good.
and yet he still continues to unimpressed just about everyone
dude check out as blood runs black
Hell, I introduced Jazzy to DM with Opeth.
If you want a good old heads up on DM, get Ghost Reveries by Opeth. Has great bass playing on it.
my music shop still stocks them for $400 au
Did you read the second part of my post? I HAVE added shipping costs etc.
I am convinced that all of the scales exercises and finger stretches in the world will never allow my to make that damn PoT harmonic stretch. Unless I get a short scale bass, which some odd sort of stupid pride won't let me do..
Stupid small female hands.
