Oh yes
that is some serious slap bass there
Very very cool Drew.I like the backing synths but mostly I
just LOVE that BASS!!
The track is a little too short though for my liking.

Funkin on
The bass comes on a little rough around the edges but I
like how the song holds together.

Yep, you're right (although it is kind of cool sounding). I'm still getting used to GB software and need to get an interface bec. I'm plugging the bass directly into my Powerbook notebook, which I now understand is not the best way to do it. I'll work on that and thank you very much for the feedback.

your funky sensibility. Alll your stuff's great! Do play out? Your chops sound like someone who plays a lot. Really enjoy your style. Thanks for joining MacJams!

Gotta love
Thanks for the nice compliments! I used to play out all of the time; now, however, I am not playing out as often. I am about to begin playing out more often, though. I used to practice those chops over and over and that's really where they came from. I love to groove and worked with drum machines and click tracks to develop the ideas, which are primarly based on tracks I've heard over the years from Marcus Miller, Flea (chillipeppers), Louis Johnson, and the bassist from Level 42 (never can remember his name).

great energy!
This is a different kind of submission here on MacJams,
very refreshing change of pace.

It's too hot right now for me to jump up and jive to this
piece, but my toes are tappin'. Great bass playing! I'm
going to point my nephew to this song page so he can
hear some REAL cookin' bass playing (he can learn from
this, definitely).

I look forward to hearing more of this great stuff from
you.
