  1. 2 things- this is an ad for strings that are for sale for upright bass, if it is not allowed then someone please redirect it to the appropriate spot for me. Secondly, this was copied and pasted from my other account at the Talkbass forums. Thanks! Hey all, I'm selling a set of Velvet Compas 180 Bass Strings (SUIT)- to clarify, they do NOT have the loops on the end, but the little black threads. These strings have had very, very little playing time on them (a couple hours at most) - they were bought in April of 2007, and taken off in the beginning of May 2007.
  2. You're talking about the chinese oktavas, right?
  3. Originally posted by Terje How important is to actually write the stuff down, from an eartraining point of view? It depends, if it's really long, then I'll write it down. Usually, I just try and memorize it though. If you do it right (listen to it a couple times), then you should be able to audiate it in your head. Sometimes I'll write weird passages down too, but honestly, just get into it. Learn the solo on Freddie Freeloader (miles davis) on kind of blue, for some good jazz.
  4. A mode is just a different way of writing music. Major, Minor, Dorian, etc. Greensleeves is in Dorian, Simpsons and Jetsons are in Lydian, and so on.
  5. Originally posted by Terje Let's take a ii-V-I in C. It isn't really important what scales I play over Dm7, G7 and Cmaj7. I could play "just" the C major scale and make great music. Probably even just the C major pentatonic. Far more important than the scale choice is what notes I play from that scale, in what order and at what time (meaning, what rhythm and phrasing I use). Far more important than the scale or scales used is to have a strong melodic idea that goes through these chords. It is also important to understand and hear the tension and release that's taking place in this cade
  6. You can't speed up anything that you never completely can master. I've been doing ear training for 6 years [i can pick out things like ii-V-I, ii-V to the IV, subtonic, all that crap, and I can pick out chords by ear] but I'm still going through an ongoing battle. Honestly, just start transcribing like crazy.
  7. It's a pretty good metal mix, one thing is that the drums could use more balls definitely, I love the guitar tones, and the vocals are too quiet (along with the bass guitar).
  8. Not to be a jerk, but this has been bothering me a little bit. The whole idea is you critique the person BEFORE your post- tell them what their song could use, and then post your own. All i've seen is 2 pages of continuous posts, with no one offering any advice to anyone else.
  9. The drums are way too far back, there's a lot of reverb. It sounds like the kick is all midrange too, you might want to scoop some stuff out. Theres a lot of reverb in general, you could definitely cut back on that.
  10. I play upright- Last summer, I got called to do a jazz gig...granted I hadn't been doing to much finger stuff over the summer. The rehearsal was 4 hours long, and the gig was an hour the next day. During the gig...my fingers started bleeding I developed huge fucking callouses for a month...and have been playing every day since. I can now play for 3 hours in a gig without an indent on my finger- I love it.
  11. To the guy who mentioned Giant Steps, it's just a series of 2-5-1s (at the very basicness). Also, to the original poster, don't worry about theory, use your ears man- ears hold more ground than theory; if it sounds right, it is!
  12. I don't. And I don't like Fenders too much either. My favorite guitar was my teachers PRS Hollowbody 22 fret guitar. Best {censored}ing tone ever.
