I’m going to start something called 365 Days Of Jazz, where i post one daily video, because i am about to start learning jazz drumming and want to share my progress so i can see how far i will have come by the end of it, here is a clip of me improvising having had very little pointers in how to play and no real clue as to what i’m doing, day 1 of #365DOJ ...
The common misconception with music, especially bass is it's easy. A guitar for peasants.
James Leach from SikTh is my personal favorite inspiration. Not only that, He is also the number one inspiration for Nolly (Ex bassist from Periphery, who uses a plectrum btw) and we all know how insane he is. Sure there are shite bassists out there. Kings of Leon and the general indie bullshit come to mind. But i'm not here to hate on any genre of music, If they love what they do, good for them. I just get sick and tired of treated like a second class citizen because i'm primarily a bassist. I play guitar, 7, 8 strings, Ukulele, Violin, 4,5 6 string bass, I play funk, progressive metal, jazz, even hip hop and pop sometimes. I play all styles. fingers, plectrum, slap pop. You think you're superior as a musician becuase you play guitar. Go watch James Leach play Scent of the Obscene and get back to me.
And go take your elitism elsewhere. James plays rings around you.
Music takes time, patience, a fuck load of frustration. Stick with it and it will be worth it.
Isn’t this a beautiful sight?? @lonestarperc
