don't want to be a total shill

 

BUT

 

there's a donation link on my stream page.  if you've enjoyed the content thus far (or enjoy future content) and you have the means, please consider throwin a couple bucks my way.  doing so will allow me to justify spending more money on records / vhs tapes to keep the streams from gettin stale.

#1422502 Bass Thread

Posted by mig50 on 19 May 2020 - 12:19 AM


For those that don't read sheet music: how do you subdivide beats?


i... don't.

i've always been awful at counting & when i would try to subdivide in my head i would concentrate so hard on the count / keeping up that i would forget to play or lose my place. that was when i was playing bass in high school jazz band & taking intro to music class in college.

since then, for better or worse, i've developed feeling timing out based on other instruments. its not ideal, and it can lead to some awkward situations in which i'm calling out parts differently than my bandmates (like instead of stating the amount of measures i state the 'parts' which is basically the full riff i'm playing or how many times i'm playing it), but it mostly works.

i hadn't really considered that too much til you asked and now i realize how rough that is / can be.

doing more transcribing & composing in midi has me considering timing in a more productive way, but i still fall on old habits when i'm playing.

trying to find a job during all of this is crushing & anxiety-inducing.
