he plays without any effects because he doesn't like it. He likes the clean sound of a bass.

I have an effect pedal for my bass and the distortion really kicks ass! But it depends on your band if u use distortion or clean sound.

Full on distortion never sounds good on bass, a little overdrive is just about right, but then again its up to you and whether you like it.

Three hours a day ... hmmm
I don't know how you can do that. The past few months I've been playing about 2 a day on average, but lately it's been less because of all this work I'm assigned at university. I also think it is extremely crazy that you played 3hrs a day when you first started. When I first started I sucked so much and was so discouraged that I didn't even play every day! It would really help if I had the internet at home, then I could download powertabs and learn songs easier I think (not to mention all those sites with programmed riffs that you can listen to and play along with)

I'm just about at the three year mark now.
As for the distortion thing I don't like it. Distortion seems to make playing 'easier' because you can't hear your mistakes as well, and then when you take the distortion off and play the same thing, you realize that you could be playing it better. Plus, it only sounds good if you have just a bit of distortion (or overdrive), so I would never waste $100 on a pedal, I'd rather buy a new pair of strings.

GAWD!!!! I feel old!!!!!

I started playing bass in the summer of 1982, so it's going on 24 years now. Although I took a 2 year hiatus from playing in the early 90's, that was more a hiatus from playing in a band, as I still played my bass whenever I could. I usually play for a few hours a day on weekends, but during the week, if I pick it up more than an hour, I've got too much time on my hands, and too many things that I SHOULD be doing. lol

Influences? Well, Steve Harris was the original influence for me to start playing in the first place, and then I jumped into playing a lot of thrash. Bandwise, it would be Slayer, Exodus, Riot, etc. Cliff Burton was a huge influence for me, too. Lately, it's guys like Alex Webster, and Jason Blackowitz.

Later.

This thread seems interesting...I've been playing for a couple months shy of 5 years...I'd never turn back and will NEVER quit the bass guitar, let alone music.


My influences - Technical Death Metal, Any good Jazz/Funk...haha, broad yet accurate.
