Just a little question, out of mere curiosity:
On "Jagannatha" at 1"57 is it a pattern of chordal tapping with some chorus on it ?
I like those small stunts so much !
Do you slap as much as you tap ? 'Cause tapping really seems to be your cup of tea ;-)

well seeing as how most of us in here are pretty good bass players here is a question...

i have been trying to get sweeps/arpeggios down on bass with out using a pick every one around here in indy says its impossiable but so far i have been proving them wrong...how did you guys learn how to sweep/arpeggio on bass?

I picked it up from classical guitar which you play with you fingers so it went over pretty easy to bass for me .

One more question: When you have copied your screen, where do you save it to upload it on Photobucket with the right format (i.e JPEG, GIF,...)?
Sorry, guess I'm a bit more gifted with a bass than a computer ;-)

well, i got my camera up and running. recorded most of the stuff I find useful. So it`ll be some more days of writing down the notes and comprehensible instructions. in the meantime, here`s a retarded improvisational clip on whats to come

Yes, sorry for confusion ! I also try to focus on the work of drummers, which is very useful/inspirational sometimes. Especially with talented guys such as Derek...

Hey dudes. Ive been playing guitar for a while now and i think its time for me to get sum more skills. I need to get a more variety in my solo's etc... just finger tapping and hammerons / pulloffs are gettin boring. Could any of you guys help teach me how to arpegio / sweep pick on a 6 string guitar? i know you guys are all talking about bass sweeping and stuff but i didnt see a thread on normal guitar sweeping etc... Just any like basic excercises or videos would be much appretiated :) Thanks a bundle.

You might have heard this before but Start slow and keep it clean im not aware of any secret way of learning other then lots of Practice . A metronome is very helpful aswell , If you look over on the Necrophagist board you might have better luck with your questions.

Yeah, unfortunately I don't think it will help you a lot to hear some explanations from bassists 'cause as a guitarist, you have to master the use of the pick to sweep tightly...

when I was learning sweeps I broke them down into parts...for example if it was a 5 string sweep I would take the first 2 & do that sweep,then add the 3d,4th & then the 5th

Please learn important things like vibrato, grace notes, legato and phrasing before you concentrate all your time on sweeping, if you haven't already. :)
