15 years since i picked up a bass the 1st time. followed by some years practicing and some infamous school n backyard bands

10 years on stage now, up today I never wanted anything more than just fun, so don't blame me that i haven't thrown 15 records out

what's kerrang? sounds like a brandname for factory made bongs?

wow, 400 people for your first gig is a lot, we had like 80-100 or something, be sure not to fuck up! your first gig will stay in your mind and a lot of poeple are going to refer to it in the future, I'm happy our first gig was cool, hehe I still remember parts of it, covering Killing In The Name, 7 Words and 5 minutes alone

Okay replied on this ages ago. Yeah as you will point out in your next post, it covers slayer, the haunted etc. True but not very often. How did the gig go?

I have been playing bass for about 4 years now, self taught.

Been gigging for about a year now with my band Inferis and if you want some good exercises for bass check out www.activebass.com that has absolutely everything on there, including every bass scale and mode.

Ok, sorry Ive been away for a way guys, times were hard but exams are done now

I usually do this exercise to warm but I used to do it all the time and it can build up good strength and co-ordination. Play the chromatic scale, every note in the first position. To cut a long story short and to spare you theory: On the E string, you play open, 1st, 2nd, 3rd THEN 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, THEN 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and OPEN A THEN 3rd, 4th, open A, 1st (On A) That may sound complicated but its very simple to understand yet annoyingly hard to play fast when you first start out. So you play 4 notes each time. Start on E (which is just open E) and then play the three semitones that follow it. Then change root to the next note, F and play the three semitones following that. You continue until your last 4 notes are the first 4 frets on G string. If you didnt understand that last bit then ignore it and re-read the first bit Remember, you never go above the 4th fret on any string, you move on to the open of the next string, thats what makes it tricky.

Keep practicising that and you will build good strength and co-ordination.

I've been playing for 2 years and at one point I quit school to play bass so I don't think I'm that bad. I took bass lessons for a year and a half and quit because I wasn't really learning anything new.
