Little bit sloppy, haven't played in a few weeks and haven't been recorded in years. Sorry about the compression. It was saved on a phone and sent through messenger, then to youtube.

How long did you practice before joining a band?

Hey everyone ! How long did you play/practice before joining a band ? I'm just curious. My plan is to practice one year before looking for a band. I have 1 year of music under my belt so far (guitar mostly chords, singing, ear training ect)

I plan on woodshedding one more year of bass/vocals before I start posting ads on craigslist…

So how long did you guys play ? What are some of the best things I could do before playing with a group? I know people like to say tget jamming with people as soon as possible but I want to be able to pick up the instrument cold and be proficient , ya know ? So I feel confident. Also I got other issues I gotta work out to make me more fit for a band….

Short scale strings for free.

Hey Bassit! Someone gave me a couple sets of 4 string D'Addario 45-100 short scale strings and I can't use them on any of my basses. Since it was an online purchase and a gift I can't really return or exchange them. I also don't want to tell the gifter they mistakenly bought the wrong thing, so I'll pass them along instead. If anybody plays a short scale they are yours free of charge. I'd rather they go to a younger player or someone just starting to play as a way to encourage them to play more! DM if you're interested.

Truss rod adjustment moves buzz

Hello, I have a bass (Gibson EB13 to be specific) that is having some set up issues. I bought the bass used and it had relatively high action along with some buzz (which I thought was weird). I tightened the truss rod to get the action pretty low but there was still some buzz on the open string, first fret, and second fret. I adjusted the truss rod to be looser. The bass does not seem to be buzzing much in the first position but now buzzes as I approach the octave and further down the neck, and the action is back to a bit higher than I'd like. Have I possibly passed a sweet spot and need to tighten the truss rod? Or does this raise some red flags related to other hardware?

When not pressed down, there is currently a 4 mm gap between the 12th fret and the bottom of the E string. Another bass I own has a gap of 3 mm in the same position and is a bit more comfortable.

Bass only death metal

I've been working on this for a few months now and I've finally gotten to a point where I could start releasing stuff. I made a (fish themed) death metal album using only a bass guitar and drum machine. I kinda wanted to prove to some friends of mine that the bass can stand alone even in metal. I used a 5 string ibanez and a whole bunch of digital pedals/effects. The first single is out here https://fishslaughter.bandcamp.com/track/yarm-the-unspoken and I'd love to know what you think. (PS I made it pay what you want and the money is going to go to Loggerhead marinelife center cos why not). as far as i know not a lot of people have done this before. Im gonna write out all the tablature for it and give it away with the album when the whole thing is released
