A couple of friends and I had a jam session yesterday. I bought my bass (Jaguar CV bass) 9 months ago and have been following Beginner to Badass (but definitely not often enough!). My friends are pretty decent guitarists, and one of them is a drummer and producer.
After a couple of hours messing around with pentatonic blues, we decided to record something and worked on a track one friend had an idea for.
It was my first time playing in front of other people, as well as first time playing along with live people, so I was a bit daunted. It turns out that, whilst I can’t play anything particularly complex yet (I need to work on my stretching and finger speed), I wrote my first bassline and recorded it. I even got compliments on my timing and tone which I’m more than happy with. I could barely believe it was me playing on the track we produced when listening to it back.
I just want to say thanks to Josh for the course. He gave me the confidence to give the bass a go and he’s given me a solid base to develop from. I’m feeling very pleased with myself this morning.
