    Surprisingly I didn't have a song called "Bass Jam", believe it or not. So that's what I decided to call this one. Simple. And to the point.
    This is much more of a raw... Everything. As usual... This was one take. And any sort of mixing issues I tried to either fix very easily or blatantly ignore. Music isn't always perfect. And this jam was very much about the emotion MUCH more than notes or even a real melody. I'm trying to develop my improvisation skills to something of a higher place. Less logic and more what decides to channel through me. Because to me that's what music is truly about. The most successful musicians aren't necessarily "successful" as it's often fed to us. If you simply love what you're doing and put true emotion into your music you're successful. In my book at least.
    This solo was a modified attempt at a very interesting soloing technique where instead of thinking of just chord structures, scales, and notes you think of the part you're soloing on. You envision the notes you're hearing played behind you and you're letting the solo simply flow as another piece of music that's WITH the music as opposed to on top of the music, which happens quite a bit.
    I think I've rambled FAR too much. If you've read this far... Have a wonderful day. I hope today was beautiful. I hope you enjoy this jam. I've been slacking on my bass chops, so as of today I'm working to better them. It's much more satisfying to say that you can play a list of instruments than just one, am I right?
