I applaud your basswork.....I love bass.....yeah as I was saying very nice bass line.  You might want to try a little less  twanging the string, but your style is your style if you like it. With better recording equipment, you could definitely make quite a wonder full piece of music.

Haha! This is ol' skool funkay. Your bass playing is a little out of time at the beginning but that happens, especially if you recorded it straight after writing it. I really like it how the guitar is slightly out of tune too. Sounds quite Honky Tonk. Good work.

There were a few problems, the most noticeable of which was the not being in tune, and the lead guitar....

the bass guitar came across so nice, I wonder why the guitar came across so terrible...
did you plug the guitar into the bass amp?

thanks for all for all your feedback. I have just managed to get it on the net its supposed to sound a bit faster but i'm just please that ive finally managed to get it on the net. and as for the out of tune guitar well.... we were using the schools equipment and is is notoriously shoddy. But hey thats underfunded state schools for you. please keep all the feedback coming.

Hey, Tom. I just recently had a problem with distortion and I finally figured out I had the bass eq up too much. Not sure if that's why this song is distorted in some areas, but I figure it's worth a try, IMO. Nice groove.

I'm sorry to say that the bass intro reminds me far too much of the Red Hot Chili Pepper's version of 'Higher Ground'

Thanks for all ya feed back. in reply to some feedback:

Timotheus: It wud remind you of their song because it follows a few of their opening root notes but our song is a is just E,A,Gx3 then A,G,F# repeat it all allot more where as Higher ground (origanoly done by stevie of course) then moves all over the place with lots of different endings and variations. Also ours is entireley slap base where as its only the opening chords that are slapped on higher ground.

Any one who said any thing technical: Yer it need a bit of tweaking and mabye i shall when i get a spare moment. In reply to all distortion comments there was supposed to be a certain amount of distortion but yer as you noticed the eq was a tadd maxed out here and there.

Pleas keep voting and leaving feedback thanks!!!

That bassline sounds almost identical to the chili peppers version of higher grounds by Stevie Wonder

I hear you have some good skills. Only in a few places, it sounded out of tune. If you work on it a bit, I'm sure it's gonna be a cool song!
