  1. Music: Other Instruments
    Disclaimer: I'm not a bass player, I'm a bass hack, lol! The down side to living in the middle of nowhere is that there are no other musicians around here that are into what I'm into(unless I want to do a country or bluegrass project) so I'm just doing my thing. Thanks to EZDrummer I've got...

    Yeah, here's why you never see me using fingers on recordings and videos :flex:
  3. General Music Discussion
    Yeah, this guy can play a little bit.

    Looking for affordable and reliable brutality Cab suggestions as well. Hopefully something more portable than an a refrigerator

    https://soundcloud.com/wildealien/basstonegoweeee I'm biamping in the Fractal, with an SVT (SV Bass 1) and a JCM800 (Brit 800 #34). The second amp was a 5150 at first, but the direct sound was a bit fizzy with it. Instead of dialing it in (lol) I just thought... What would Lemmy do? Also...
  6. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    All my years of taking apart different guitars and setting them up, I have not once setup a bass. I think its about time I dive into it, as I am not happy with certain things. My biggest issue is when I hit single notes, there is no sustain. What can I do to fix this? Is that due to too high...

  8. Music: Recording Studio
    I'm noodling around with some bass tones and trying to keep my effects as simple as possible. Right now i'm using: EQuality for a high/low pass Compassion (Compressor) with pretty aggressive settings (because it's metal) Bass Rider In that order. It sounds pretty good most of the time, but I...

    No, I'm not fucking Gene Hoglan or Dave Lombardo. But maybe one day I will get there? I changed the "red cam" for the "white cam" on my Pearl Eliminator today and suddenly feel more comfortable with 180bpm 16th notes. Maybe I can get even faster if I just start practicing more? :scratch: I...
  10. Music: Recording Studio
    Again, just another snippet, only this time it's from my solo stuff, with the sort of tone I intended to use it for. Somewhere between dUg Pinnick and VDoP era Rex Brown. Fucking massive, but sits in with the guitars so nicely. Obviously it's exaggerated in the mix so you can hear it, but you...

    Session bassist extraordinaire Leland Sklar has been posting videos every few days during the Corona lockdown and doing playthroughs along with stories. It's not metal but these have been great to watch, especially for someone who still wrestles with bass- Throwing It All Away (music starts at...
  12. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    It was probably Matt's bass thread that got me going on this, but while I do have an Ibanez SR500 sitting right behind me, it's my wife's, and I'd kinda like something for myself. Budget is ~$600, but I'm willing to spend more for a nice piece. Thicker neck for sure. 4 string is plenty. Two...
  13. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I've been in the market to upgrade my bass gear for awhile. The next item will be to upgrade to a better bass as I'm still playing a simple Ibanez SG. I've had good tones out of using it and either running it through guitar amps, multi-effect/preamp pedals, or straight to the board with a VST...

    https://soundcloud.com/crowborn84/charvel-3b/s-JhDQorXb6zQ Sorry it's not longer but I don't write much thrash these days. Also this isn't how I tend to dial it in but since a lot of people keep asking me to do a thrash demo of it I went with that instead :lol: Guitars were my 5150 II on the...
  15. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Thought of sharing this... I hope I am not crossing any rules. Three years ago or so, I had an idea of making a guitar play bass lines at the same time so I can jam with my son who was learning to play drums at the time. It was boring jamming without a bass player. I now call the guitar...

    Used Aerodyne J bass. Modded with an aguilar 4P-60 P pickup (assuming - it's closely matched to the J) and a Babicz bridge. Traded a strat towards it, since they aren't getting scooped up as I'd hoped. I have a black babicz bridge, so I'll be swapping them out and sending the chrome on to my...
