you're definately going to want monitors. headphones don't have any phase cancellation, so while it may sound great, it won't be accurate to what it will sound like on speakers.

Tyrant, just do a position shift somewhere in there. If you practice it you can shred with it. Don't ever get locked into one position for something as as simple as conveniance.

I agree with ramma, the beatles cover was horrible, and plus Outcast got best album of the year. How can you really give out an award like that? Did the commitee who votes for it really listen to every album last year? No, then it is impossible to give out such an award, plus, opinion is the key. I...

I was suggesting that in the future posts we could start making lewd comments. It was just a joke though, I don't think anything innappropriate has been sai...

Wow.

So, this is Steve's forum, so does that mean it's okay to make lewd comments about John Pertrucci's wife?

If you do, you'd better speak up quick, it may get crazy up in herea!

Woohoo! Finally, some bass questions. Yea, muting with your left hand is something you should really work a lot on. You'd be surprised how much you can mute with your left hand when you really take a lot of time to work on it. In addition to that, accuracy is a big thing. Make sure you're only hitti...

I think it has to do with consistency and time. It's easier to keep everything in time when you're going up down up down dadadadada. I think it's best to practice with strict alternate picking to help solidify your time.
