That was great. I’m chipping away at this one. I had not heard the song before and at first I thought it was really fast, but it’s slowly starting to feel achievable!

This song was little difficult for me I got nerve damage on my fretting hand. So it’s difficult to play in Higher(upper)register. Used my Vox star streamer Short scale . Only paid 450.00 for it with quality parts and sound good to me.
Never have I heard this song before but cool tune. I have heard of the Strokes.

Yea never heard of it before either. Cool tune. For me it felt like it slowed down the more I played it.

@Ruknrole got a great price . Would have never paid what they were asking. Aguliar pickups, 18vAguilar OBP 2 preamp, some goth tuners and bridge. Actually fit perfectly to my body when playing. Saw the one humbucker with ebony fretboard on Reverb today. There asking 550. Or something like that. Regular price is something like 1500.00 bucks. Way to much. Come in about 6.5 Lbs. Light.

Nice work @Ruknrole and @BigAl both sounded right on the money.

Vox star streamer - it say’s it’s an Alder body but are the ‘wings’ alder as well or a composite? Looks an interesting bass.

Maybe it’s me, but as a beginner this felt like a big step up from the first 12 songs. I had to put a decent amount of homework in, to even get somewhat close to this song.
However, I enjoyed the vegetables once again.
Fender P Bass > ZoomB1 (#16 - MM Clean) > Focusrite > Garage Band

@Barney ,The wings are made of heavy duty plastic. That’s what it feels to me.

Yep, I’d agree with this. I’ve slowed it down, but not sure I’ll get to the right speed and still have it sounding sort of clean. I like the tune though, so I’ll keep plugging away. You did a great job on it. Thanks for the info on how you recorded it too.

That was out of sight great @Ruknrole!

I have not started this one.
I really dislike this song, and that part of the fretboard.
This one will be like pulling teeth here.
