Hello all! I am new to this board, but I am in serious need of help.
I have been playing for close to 5 years now, and find myself to be a proficient enough bass player to hold down my groove. BUT.......
In these past 2 years, I have barely progressed enough to notice. Yes, this is a RUT. One hell of a rut might I add. I have done everything people have told me to do... I have listened to ALL sorts of different music and do so religiously, tried to play along with it, EVERYTHING. What it always seems to come back to is I play the same note patterns when I am creating a line. As well as my finger picking speed is quite slow. I can't keep anything going consistently when I am playing faster. Slower things aren't a problem and I articulate these lines and notes VERY WELL. I don't know what to do here ladies and gentlemen. For the love of everything holy, I am begging for suggestions.
I appreciate any and all comments that you may have!
Antonio
