Not that I've found, but I'm only using the 2 pedals - one on battery and one on an official boss power supply.

Hello everyone, this is a "test" of my new bass(my first 6 strings) rather than a cover (Dream Theater tune) but here it is :

I'd call this at least close enough, altho it doesn't sound as huge on this recorded version as it does naturally, of course:

Lol. If you'd know what kind of stuff I play other than Muse, you wouldn't say that. Besides, even my bass teacher told me that I should use a pick, as I have fairly short fingers. So... please, let people do things the way they prefer, want or have to.

What kind of stuff do you play ?

Playing with a pick isn't bad, if it's because you want a particular sound. If you play with a pick only because it's easier, it's a shame.

I think some of the timings are off in the onset of your notes, and I think it's mostly because of you playing with a pick. Even though the sound is great, I strongly recommend you play this with fingers; in the end, knowing how to do both properly will increase your playing and versatility as a bass player.
Playing with a pick isn't a bad thing, but some things just play less sloppy with fingers.

As I said, using fingers is much harder for me, as I have fairly short fingers. And yeah, I noticed off-timing, and some of that is true, but now that I listened my own track only, I think some of them are in time, but the effect makes it so mashed that they sound being off.

EDIT: And btw, I made this in one take and I never aim for 100% perfect result, but rather on something I myself enjoy(one of the reasons I usually do only one take). I also try to 'go with the song' when I play, rather than just stand still(which really annoys me when watching many youtubers), and that may cause a few mistakes. But yeah, as I said, I rather make a cover to be different/interesting/enjoyable than just standing still and playing with that perfect touch.

I don't see how it could be a problem to play with short fingers You just have to find the good position for your hand, and that's it.

Well, I can, with my Headless Kingbass, but that has pickups that don't fir for this kind of stuff. At all. They are so muddy, I can play Uprising etc. with that, but this much fuzz would sound flat out empty with that.

You don't need to rest your fingers on the pickup

And here is the point. My fingers are so short that I have to hold my thumb on A-string if I wanna play from G. So, for example, gg Hysteria.

Well there's nothing wrong with resting your thumb on different strings. It's a matter of technique. If you can't be arsed learning the right technique for your hand, be honest and just say you don't want to, but this 'too small hands' story is very untrue.

You don't see her complaining about her small hands do you?


Now, have a look at this



Free stroke technique, 2:42

Would hate to see what would happen to that girl if she did complain about her hands.
