Yea man!

Love that tele...

It's a bit ill, though. I need to re-solder it's insides. Major loose connection there.

Ah, wait... I found a mistake on your "main" website (www.dmanlamius.com):

In the section "Learn to play" on that site the like to "Under the bridge" leads to the lesson of "Creep" by Radiohead.

Could you fix that link, please? I usually get trapped if I don't use the forums to get to the lessons Very Happy

Thanks a bunch^^

sorry if my sentence was completely unclear... i'm trying hard to write some understandable english, but it doesn't work too often lol!

Just great, man!

Thanks a lot for that. It helps so much finding the "right" lessons for anybody, I think! Good work!

The entire song after the bass comes in is at 86 BPM.

I wanted the BPM so I can work on keeping time better (its something I need to work on over all)

Dmans video on keeping time has helped me as well

I need to learn this song in 3 weeks and i can only practice 1 day a week pale so i was wondering i am playing the whole song and i have to memeorize it and the worst thing is i haven't played bass but i have played guitar and im not very good.

So i was wondering if i really try think i can get the song in 3 weeks?


I am desperate for help and my friends are counting on me another friend of mine is going to play the drums and another one the guitar and they already know their part and i haven't even started on mine but i have seen your videos and I hope that they are enough to make me memorize it


Please anwser soon

I think you can do it, but one day a week means you'll basically have to have it down in three days. If you can squeeze in more practice I would strongly advise you to do so.

I would not recomend the one day a week thing, if it can be avoided...
I've heard(and agree) that you learn more in 5 minutes a day, for a week. then a single 1 hour sitting for a week.

I dont thing anyone here can give you shortcuts(if we could, we'd be selling books), you can only pratice. Realy the only thing i can say is if you realy want to learn this that you need to make the time for it.


Also whats the song? maybe we can make tabs for you, or some are already out there... or someone might take te time to do a lesson.

Thanks

Well thank you all for your help but trust me if i could squeeze in more time i would do the thing is i dont have a bass its a friend of mine and the amplifier is another friend of mine
so we only do band practice 1 day a week and that's fridays and i already have the tabs the thing is its easier hearing someone do it than reading it from a tab i am hoping that if i get the rythm of the song i can do the part and the song is not really hard or so i have heard its :under the bridge by the red hot chili peppers

Red Hot Chili Peppers: Under The Bridge



Thank you for your support if you have any more tips you can give me or just cheer for me i will log on every day I really hope to finish the song because its for a contest and its really important to me and my friends who are counting on me

My e-mail is chema_sala@hotmail.com if you have anything that can be helpfull please reply

If you realy need to learn to play, then i recomend getting a lend of that bass, you'll need it if your friend wants you to learn to play(i assume (s)he does?)
An amp isnt needed, i needed one when i stated, but now i can pick up on the sounds realy easy. Try playing it without the amp to see if you realy even need it.

(i feel like a dumbass for asking what song, what get for not checking the topic title...)
BTW- no offence or anything, but your aware that the first post is Dman teaching that song right?
Anyway, i recomend you watch the video close, and at least try to act out the movement, try to get the idea at least, so maybe when you play you'll get the muscle memory faster. So air bass ftw?

If you intend to stick with bass you should get your own, and for the sake of having something to do try out this site - http://www.studybass.com/lessons/bass-technique/
You will never be able to get far without playing, so having a bass to play is essential as far as i can tell, but a bit of theory can go a long way.
But remember, pratice, you'll never get better without it.

TY that solves 1 problem but not the other ones

Post  chemorro on Fri Jan 29, 2010 2:58 am

Do you think you can play with a guitar instead of a bass just to practice? the thing is if i get lent a bass still the song is a little hard or maybe im just a noob but the thing is that I dont think i can learn it and many people think i can but the site you showed me well it says that it's almost frickin impossible to learn that song in 3 weeks and yeah it says about air bass but I am a BIG dumass and I can't play it im a frickin idiot so thanks for the advice it helped me a lot.


P.S:If I do make it then i will make a donation to Dman's forum. i really like all the help here thanks to all the forum members and Dman also cuz he helped me a lot so wish me luck cheers
