Ha Ha! You talking about that guy and notation?

The lessons are appreciated, but most people PM me (like AM in the first lesson) but you always get ONE person that has to be negative. Well...normally more than one on basschat, lol.

His comment has absolutely no viability to it at all. And you'll notice that people that make these comments will never have sites. No videos. They never want people to see their ability. They just sit in the background and stab.

Actually, I have a problem with that site. There are a lot of idiots on it. I don't know why, but it reflects bad on us brits. Yea man, the word "snobby" is perfect.

I asked them some time back if I could make my beginner lesson thread a sticky (like the guys on talkbass did), and I was told that they "don't do that, because there are too many lessons out there". A couple of months later, I notice Dave Marks has a beginners bass lesson thread! Ha Ha! That made me chuckle. Very Happy

But, that's the nature of the internet I guess... Wink

Ahh the internet the ability to annoy and jab at people you'll never have to deal with face to face...

Anyway, good post Smile
There should be a rep system on this forum and if there is I should be aware of it Mad

Causes needless trouble - something you don't want in small communitys like this. In my opinion of course.

Couldn't agree more, I don't generally get involved with large communities - gaming, bass or otherwise. I prefer Communities like this, more human and less dickheady approach Wink

Hey Guys I have been hiding out just reading the forums, I really enjoy this tapping exercise. I am trying to figure out a way to loop it. I like listening to it while I do my 1234 exercises. Anyway thanks for posting it. And all the other lessons you have done, it has gotten me interested in practicing again. I have not practiced for over 8 years so I really needed to start again. I have just been working the songs that I will be playing each week and not trying to improve my technique so again thank you.


Anyway back to lurking y'all have a good day and keep it up.

That has got to be one of my favorite jam things by Dman. That one, or maybe The Cosmic Sprout Razz

Of course, it's entirely possible. How long it would take for someone to tab that out is another question, but that would be the most amazing thing ever.

There are not enough plus's on this forum, to explain how many +1's I want to give to the Sleep, Melody, Sleep tab request.

*Edited to +1's x100. Just for forum members sanity!

Everyone say:

"Bad Drak!"

Damn, Drak, why'd you have to go and make the page long and shit? I forgot what I was going to post while I was looking for the box to write in.

Way to interrupt a 3 year-old topic Laughing
Anyway, I believe it's this one http://www.learnbassforum.com/t625-tapping-exercise-1
I'd also recommend scrolling through the exercises section as there a lot of good vids there Smile

I suck too, but I'm getting better Razz My main problem is with EQ and dynamics. Discovering how hard I need to tap whichever frets on whichever strings in order to achieve an overall dynamically consistent sound is rather an arduous process indeed. Generally speaking, if I tap a two-note chord on the A and D strings while tapping a melody on the G string, all taps at roughly the same velocities, the melody ends up near inaudible Razz
