TheCrimsonSaint;2104071 said:Let me tell you something. I can't either. But the best way to get better is to fail really hard at really hard songs. For me, at least, things just automatically fall into place and all of sudden I'll pull off the insane 16th note run on Ktulu and be like HOLY **** YES!!!!
JukeBoxHero;2104117 said:Probably should starting doing that with Xanadu full time now. Testing this week kinda impedes on the process by I will get on it.
TheCrimsonSaint;2104149 said:What type of bass are you chugging away on?
JukeBoxHero;2104208 said:Fender Squire Jazz with the action lowered and Ernie Ball strings.
JukeBoxHero;2104278 said:I do like my bass but sometimes it feels like it's impending my progress as a bassist. My next bass is going to be a fretless for practice. This one looks rather nice for the price. http://www.rondomusic.com/spj3tsfl.html
TheCrimsonSaint;2104310 said:I'm going to have to be honest here... avoid any bass that cheap. Unfortunately, you pretty much get what you pay for with these instruments, and $300 is about the base for when the instrument starts being of solid quality.
JukeBoxHero;2104381 said:That is true, lately I've been thinking maybe of trying more of a upgrade than another bass. The fleabasses are intriguing, I like to hear one in action. I also like the color of schemes for those basses. http://www.fleabass.com/ I'll probably be doing a lot of testing before I make a purchase. Just to vent here also, I'm very ticked that Fender raised the price of their basses. Especially on the Geddy Lee model... http://bass-guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fender-Geddy-Lee-Jazz-Bass-?sku=517881&src=3WFRWXX&ZYXSEM=0&CAWELAID=26044021$800 use be a goal I think I can do, $1200 is ridiculous in my mind. I love playing that bass too.
TheCrimsonSaint;2104455 said:Having experience with the Geddy J, I can tell you that that would be a brilliant use of $800. It's so buttery-smooth... it's wonderful. I wouldn't buy it, however, because try as I might, I can't get it to sound really fat. But it's so easy to play and it's tone is so perfect (too perfect, IMHO), that most non-metal bassists would be crazy to pass it up.
JukeBoxHero;2104520 said:If it was still $800 dude, I would be all over it. I played it before too, I could play more precise and have a better tone than I ever did on the bass I have now. However, now it's over $1200, that ticks me off. :mad:
TheCrimsonSaint;2105127 said:When did the price go up? It was $800 as of last week at my local GC.
JukeBoxHero;2105181 said:Online it says 1200, so I'm afraid the price might change for it locally. If it stays at $800, I will certainly be saving up for it.
TheCrimsonSaint;2105204 said:What a load of crap. It had better be American made now or something, because if it's still Jap made then they are essentially busting us for $400 for no reason. Good thing I made my upgrade last summer in case prices start going up across the board. Stagflation's a *****.
JukeBoxHero;2105268 said:I don't know, it's still a good bass regardless of where it's made. Fender suppose to be doing that for their stuff. If I'm not mistaken, I think they even raise the price on their beginner basses. It's not as much but I think I saw a change in the price.
TheCrimsonSaint;2105280 said:This is why I'm an Ibanez man.
JukeBoxHero;2105308 said:That is why I'm Rickenbacker man, although I'm no where close to affording something like that.

TheCrimsonSaint;2105379 said:Hahahahahahahahahaha, dude. Everybody is a Ric man.
Lolicat;2105535 said:I think out of tune acoustic guitars sound cool.
JukeBoxHero;2105562 said:Based off some comments not everyone is. There is also plenty of Rickenbackers online to be bought on ebay.
Alright_Computer;2105572 said:I have bad memories of out-of-tune acoustic guitars. Therefore, I don't really like them.
Lolicat;2105575 said:Rickenbackers are cool, but I'd never really want one specifically.
