  1. There might be some resemblance, although there is more variety if you go through their discogrpahy. I just picked up a bunch of basslines where the bass is definitely relavant to the soing doubling a guitar riff or going along with drum accents, etc. Their last album (which I didn´t take a single tune from in this compilation) has a pretty different style, even the bass tone is different. Recommended listen as a band, anyways. Or at that would be my opinion. Thanks for watching!
  2. Hi there low frequency fellas, hope you are doing fine. I had some free time last weekend and made use of that to record another video for my YouTube channel. I gave a quick run over some songs from this well known band I have been listening for quite a while, although I never sat myself to learn any of their songs before. Arguably simple lines overall, but damn fun to jam around. The last time I did something similar to this with the basslines of other band I also included the tabs of what I am playing and some guys said they were thankful for that, so I took some extra time and did that again. I hope you find this video enjoyable or useful. Of course, feel free to share any thoughts about it here. Thanks a lot for watching!
  3. Just sharing my take on the basslines Tim Commerford put on this one. Probably not the most remembered part of his work (RATM tunes get way more covers done than the Audioslave era), but there are still a lot of fun songs to have a go from these 3 albums he made with this band. Leaving the tabs as well for those who are interested in checking out the notes played Greetings and thanks for watching/listening!
  4. You are welcome! I have a bunch more of these, and though I´m very likely to share them here as well if I have some time to make them available in the forum, you can check them in my YouTube channel. In fact I have other Bass Backing tracks stored in my PC I should upload someday as well Have fun practicing!
  5. Hi there guys! Some days ago I realized there wasn´t a single backing track just for bass uploaded on YouTube for this well known funk track, and since I had one on my PC I figured out it could be useful for many bass players looking to practice this classic bassline or just jam along with it to share it on the web. So here it is. I also dared to upload a little jam example over the BT at the beggining in the rare case someone doesn´t know it and wants to listen a bit before putting hands on it. In case you know the song you can obviously skip that part and save yourself from seeing my cheap bass, under-average playing and not-so-pretty face, lol. Being serious again, I hope this comes handy for anyone looking to practice. Thanks a lot for watching/listening!
  6. Ok, thanks. I will give it a read. So far I´m rockin´ the 2.3.1 version and will check if the update improves something for me. Greetings!
  7. Just sharing this take on the final part of this Daft Punk classic (I know it´s originally played with a synth, but I traslated it to bass to make it more interesting ) Thanks for listening!
  8. Hi there guys, just sharing this bassless backing track for one of the most recurrent tunes for guys getting into slap. I hope it comes handy for anyone looking for practice tracks to move that thumb Greetings!
  9. I might partially agree with the general idea of trying to take advantage of the physical language as an extra way to convey the emotions that the notes alone can´t on their own; but I can´t help to say this video is EXTREMELY long and over-edited for the sole purpose of basically telling bass colleagues to smile, move around and look like they are enjoying the play. Nevertheless if I see I very proficient and technical player that does stuff miles ahead of what I can do, chances are I´m going to respect him and have fun watching him play no matter is he keeps a steady face staring at the ground all the show. John Myung comes to mind as an example. The guy barely moves, smiles, makes eye contact whatsoever with teammates or the audience, (let alone speak) while performing; but his craft has been top-world-class-quality for decades and I wouldn´t dare to roast him just over the fact he looks like a robot sometimes.
  10. Hi there fellas! Lately I was getting back at some tunes I haven´t been playing for a while and casually landed on this great instrumental track, from the early days of the almighty Metallica (You know, before the tragic day where Lars Ulrich decided that the bass channel knobs of should be turned down in the mix and our beloved 4 strings instrument could still be heard ) From all of the interesting work that Cliff Burton threw in that track I always loved this particular section, probably the most memorable bassline of the song, so I decided to put up another mini vid giving it a try. (I hope it sounded well enough for the minute of your lives I´m stealing for the listen, lol) Thanks a lot for watching!
  11. I use Hydrogen (free to use, fairly simple and friendly) so far, but I guess it´s time to move on to bigger and better sounding software. I still didn´t figure out which one is my best option at the moment.
  12. Not much of the stuff I have on Soundcloud is directly related to bass, but in case someone is interested for a check, here it is my account to be added to the collective. Thanks in advance for anyone listening.
  13. OK, here I go with this one: It´s an adaptation for bass I did with this Daft Punk classic, transcribing the last synth solo for bass and jamming a bit as well. I hope you guys like it!
  14. Thank you very much! Well, in that video you have a Backing Track you can use in case you want to try. Greetings!
  15. New guy to the forum, so let this be my presentation card. I´m 35. Got into learning music a bit more seriously more than 2 decades ago when I started out as a drummer (I was 15 or so). Soon after took up guitar as well and had quite a few bands along the way. (Some of them as drummer, some of them as guitarist). Nevertheless in some part of the musical journey with the years I had interest in learning to play more instruments as well (Keyboards, Harp, Percussion, etc) so among them I got my first bass in 2012, a used red Jazz Bass I bought from a co-worker who is still with me to this day. Since I took up the instrument being a bit older with less time for practice compared to my teen days, I never been extremely consistent at practice and getting better, but I´m still trying whenever I can. Recently I found a good way to motivate myself to keep playing is to record myself sometimes and upload some stuff to a YouTube channel I already had, and for some reason along all the types of musical videos I have there the ones related to bass seem to be the ones to gain more interest from people I don´t know in real life (I guess most of those viewers are bassists too). That made me realize that the online bass comunities seem to be (in most of the cases) more chill places than other micro-musical environments over the Web. So, going with that kind of unexpected good vibes flow from the bassists I found so far on the Internet I landed here searching for another space to share experiences, videos, talks about technique and practice, general music, etc. You probably won´t expect me to be that much around "gear geek" talks though, but who knows? See you around.
