: Hi and thanks in advance,

: I've been playing (restate that "practicing") for about 8 months and noted that
: bass playing is choppy - meaning that your can hear each note distinctly and
: individually. It does not have the continuous note to note sound that I
: have heard so often. For example, I've purchased Gary Willis's book on
: Fingerboard Harmony and listened to the CD. My mouth dropped when I listened to
: his lines moving with very little distinction or pause between notes.

: My question is: does that come with time or maybe my techinque is wrong? I am
: self taught so it is possible my technique is slightly incorrect. Also, I am 52
: so I'm not as fast, and don't expect to be, as the younger players.

: Any response would be helpful.
: Thanks again,
: Denys
