Hiya, again. Thanks to those who replied to my last post (as abrupt as they
were). Anyways, I'm in a serious rut here. Ok.. I have the understanding
I can PLAY, just not well. Granted, 4 years isn't a whole lot of experience,
but still. I can't find a steady groove or even blow up a decent freestyle anymore.
Whatever talent I had seems to be deadweight now. Yes, pity pity. I've tried using
new picks, I've tried modifying my slap style, I've attempted to beat sharp
nails into my bass.. all these ideas seem moot. I'm not the most technical
person around (scales? wha?) and no, I don't label myself as an "elite bassist",
nor do I have the inclination to. Is there anyone (including Karel) that can
help this poor dumb non-technical boy out? If you can't help me because I don't
understand what's going on most of the time, help me because I have SPIRIT!
(P.s. Don't recommend me finding a teacher. Already tried that.) Thanx!! -Don
