I know this is strictly a guitar site, but I think it would be beneficial to have some basic bass lessons to help improve backing tracks and song writing. Any thoughts?

My Gear
Cort X-2 electric with 24 frets and 2 humbucker's dark Blue
Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

If you want to get an idea of a backing track there is a really cool way to do it: simply take your favorite band, put on the headphones because than you can hear all instruments much better than on speakers, and concentrate on bass guitar. usually guitarists concentrate on guitar and singer! But this time concentrate on bass guitar and just follow bass guitar only. Than listen to same song for second time and listen only to drums. I did it a couple of times with some of my favorite bands and i really got to know their music much better! smile.gif

Thanks for the tips. My bass lines are bland and could use all the help I can get!
