HI EVERYBODY, I HAVE A PROBLEM AND REALLY CAN USE SOME HELP. FIRST, I HAVE JUST STARTED PLAYING BASS ABOUT A YEAR AGO. I HAVE SOME DRUMMING BACKGROUND AND A LITTLE ELECTRIC GUITAR, SO IT WASN'T TO HARD TO PICK UP AND LEARN AS THOUGH I KNEW NOTHING. BUT, I HAVE BEEN PLAYING WITH A FRIEND WHO IS A GREAT GUITAR PLAYER, AND THE LICKS I LEARNED, HE BASICALLY SHOWED ME. WE JUST FOUND A DRUMMER WHO IS PHENOMINAL, AND WE ACTUALLY HAVE SOMETHING GOING AS A BAND. THE PROBLEM I HAVE IS I CAN'T KEEP UP WITH THERE TALLENT WITH SUCH A SHORT TIME AS A BEGGINER. I JUST CAN'T SEEM TO PICK UP THE CHANGES BY EAR. I PRACTICE WHEN I CAN BUT IT SEEMS THAT I'M NOT MOVING FORWARD AT ALL. CAN SOMEONE TELL ME HOW TO GET OVER THE " BEGGINERS" HUMP? ALSO, I NEED TO KNOW HOW AND WHAT I SHOULD BE PRACTICING. I'VE HEARD EVERYTHING FROM MAJOR SCALES,TO ARPPEGIOS. THANKS FOR ANY ADVISE., PAUL
