    Smile Finally got a chance to record some real bass!

    I borrowed my brother's new 200 dollar Epiphone bass...it's at least enough to make me really want to buy a nice bass.

    Here's a simple tune that gave me a chance to try it out. I'm not a very experienced bass player, but it felt great to get real bass strings in my hands. I've been doing all my bass with a synth, and as a guitar player that's really not nearly as fun as real strings. Anyway, maybe working the overtime it takes for a quality bass would be worth it for me?

    Thanks for your time!

    (I promise I'll try not to make too many excuses about the bass playing!)

    Ya had some trouble uploading it...should be up in a few minutes...sorry about that.


    Ran the bass through an Art Tube MP pre that I've been saving for the day could record a bass. I originally bought it for vocals, but got something better.

    Should be up soon...

    Nice tune SLuiCe!

    If it was me (and I know it's not ) I'd actually bring the bass up in the mix more. What I can hear sounds good. I listened through headphones in case your wondering.


    I like it.

    First thing that comes to my mind (besides having another awesome SLuiCe tune to listen to) is raise the Bass up but I'm only listening on phones at work so I can't wait to listen on my home system. I'm very interested in hearing what you do with Bass in your recordings because I recently started in with Bass on my own stuff. I've got a G & L ASAT which is an active Bass and I seem to have a lot of problems with noise, but I think a fair amount of that is my playing.
    I may sell this thing, it's too heavy for me!

    Looking forward to more real Bass. Not knocking synths but I like the real thing!

    Thanks a lot guys! You're right...I got all paranoid and mixed it down!

    I'll have the new mp3 up in about 10 minutes if you want to hear it and let me know if it's loud enough.
