Might sound like a stupid question but how do you find other amateur musicians to jam with?
For context I picked up bass originally in my early 20's and back then finding a amateur guitarist was a dime a dozen, either a friend played or had a mate who did. As with all things life got in the way and i put down the bass to pursue a career as it required alot of studying and exams with the aim to go back once i qualified. That took slightly longer then intended (10 years on and off) but i've been back playing for a year now and i'm getting to the point it would be cool to find others to jam with, however it's difficult to find anyone these days. All those mates or friends of friends have stopped playing or moved away. I've had a look on the joinmyband website and most want experienced players for proper bands which is a bit beyond my scope atm.
Update : so I think it’s either the eq on the amp and/or the bass itself. I dug my old thunderbird out and initially had the same issue.
with that one turning the tone right up helped bring the sound out more. However the jazz didn’t work with the same treatment
ive got a fender jazz bass with a quiet open A string problem. When played acoustically or with an mxr thump pedal it’s fine, all sounds equal. However when just going into the amp going from a fretted note to an open the sound drops noticeably.
one thing that might/might not be related is the four middle magnets on the pickups are elevated, idk why it was done by its previous owner and I haven’t got round to getting it sorted.
it could be how the settings on my amp are. I haven’t played around much to find my tone yet so if there’s any eq suggestions I’m open to them
Been a little while since my last post. Like a lot of you I've been looking for ways to fill the void in the last year, so I've been uploading bass covers of new songs to YouTube, and had a lot of people asking if I have tabs for the bass lines.
Has anyone had experience in creating and posting tabs on their YouTube channel? I looked into trying to make the tab a part of the video but it seemed to require a level of editing way beyond my simple video editing 'skills' 😂. I can also see that some people create PDF's of tabs and upload them to Google drive and share the link but I've no idea what program they're using.
Many thanks in advance!
