: thanks for the help on timing. but i'm worried about developing bad habits during this early stage of my playing. so if anyone has any good tips on building good technique, it would help me heaps. i'm also having trouble with slap bass, any tips there would really help. thanks for your help

: oh yeah, i need to settle an argument with my friend, although it has nothing really to do with bass. who is a better lead guitarist: Eddie Van Halen or Angus Young? i think Angus is, because he rules!

Hey there LuKe,
I'll give you what I think is the best piece of advice ever: hook up with a good teacher. I mean, tips'n tricks can be given, but judging from your post, what you seem to need is someone who can actually watch your develpoment and suggest the needed corrections in your techinque as the bad habits show up.
As for the second part o your post, who are those two guys? ...oh yeah, the play those puny little instruments with six wimpy strings! (tongue firmly held in cheek).
Buena suerte and keep your bass up front in the mix,
El Pájaro
