As cool as that is, it reminds me of Phil Fish and that I hate him.

I really love that I can do the main bass riff on Blitzkrieg Bop, easy as shit but it's cool to me that I can learn while I having no really knowledge on how to play the bass.

yeah it feels really cool to be able to play a recognizable riff even if it's not that difficult to do.

Thanks to Rocksmith, I'm slowly learning how to play Slow Hands by Interpol. I'm getting better and better at it, especially with my fingers over a pick.

don't worry ive been fiddling on my bassist's guitar on and off for a couple years, still don't have the technique down even though notes-wise i know it just as well as a regular guitar. its something that really does take a lot of practice and conditioning.

I'm a fast learner but I can imagine it'll be a while before I can adequately play the insturment. It's good to have goals though.

yeah i mean being a fast learner helps you with like, what to play, but there's also a physical aspect -- how you play it. its something your fingers have to become comfortable with, almost second nature with. if there's one thing ive learned about bass, it's not like guitar or piano where if you hit all the right notes you pretty much got it down. being consistent with volume (on bass it's really easy to accidentally hit a random loud note that clips on the soundsystem/in a recording), playing firmly without the noise of the strings slapping against the pickups, even keeping a steady rhythm all requires very specific technique, like your fingers have to be firm but delicate at the same time. it's really hard.

im sure you know this but if you angle your hand downward to where your fingers are perpendicular to the guitar, it makes all this a lot easier.
