Song 6 - "Hound Dog" by Elvis Presley

Great job all…really enjoy watching everyone’s videos (almost as much as I do learning and playing these songs).

I’ve been jammed at work and then on vacation last week but hope to return to contributing asap.

Thanks. New bass is a standard 34" scale. Basically just a fancy Jazz Bass clone.

Agreed! Watching people play bass guitar in a chair seems so peculiar to me. Good going @John_E

Hi Guys

I’ve been out of the loop for a few weeks but getting back in slowly. Well done to everyone on their submissions, very inspiring stuff. I’m learning Hound Dog at the moment, so will be recording it soon. Never really liked the song but having played it through a few times its really good fun :slight_smile:

Cheers
Matthew

Alright, back to the challenge…. it’s been busy, but this one is fun to play, some issues with timing… I’ve noticed that staying steady the whole song was the hardest thing here…

Nice job at the beginning @Reo. I think you may have unsynced yourself somewhere in the middle though, got a little ahead of the track, maybe you couldn’t hear the background track well?

For me I need it in headphones, even through ambient speakers loud isn’t good enough to keep me on track sometimes.

Some seriously nice low thumpin bass though!

Thanks, :+1:
yes, I have trouble with that, I don’t always find a reference for the timing within the song, so once I slipped it’s hard to get on it again, and if I like the song I’m more likely to loose it :woozy_face:
