Sound stiff or am I just a Bass Bot?

I know that I am just getting back in to the bass. I played it an original band years ago but knew nothing about it and played it like a guitar. I knew nothing about bass technique, skills or theory so really just like a beginner here.

It gets frustrating when playing simple songs like Tush or La Grange by ZZ Top and I sound stiff or like Bass Bot.

I know keep playing and practicing. Just venting.

Don’t let this slow you down. We all go through it. Whenever I learn something new, I always start out sounding like BassBot and Newb Josh rolled into one.

What say you @BassBot? Does it get better?

I didn’t know we had a Bassbot.

So… I want to know if I will be rich and famous, and eventually take the “weekend bar classic rock cover band” genre by storm.
