Nicely done! I particularly enjoyed California Dreamin', maybe because that's really the only song I know of the 5 you did.

Appreciate it. I have other recordings of other songs where I play along with the tracks (i.e. act like a member of the band) but I haven't uploaded them yet and not sure if I will or not.

When I think bass instrumentals, I think Metallica's Anesthesia (Pulling Teeth). Go go Cliff Burton.

Thanks man. Its hard to make recordings sound good when it's all bass guitar. Wish I could find a band or something to play with on off-time. I'd settle for being in a decent cover band or something. Work makes it kinda tough and I'm not friends with anyone that really plays so it makes it tough.

bring your bass and go club to club..you are bound to find some band with a missing member.

if you are planning on finding a band this may prove a problem then....

Unless you are stuck with a moped a gig amp and your bass should fit in most vehicles. Heck get crazy and bring some pedals and extra strings even.

Sorry, should have added "and find someone that wants you to play with them" at the end of that first post.

It's really frustrating because I know I am at least decent enough to be in an ok cover band, but know of no one. Plus my schedule makes it so I could only play every other weekend. Thanks for the kudos.
