    So I've been playing with my fingers (King's X content)

    And what better way to learn than by learning King's X songs?



    It's sloppy because it's only been 4-5 days since I started playing without a pick. The AxeFX preset is Squid's that I've tweaked so much, I need to get the original one again because this is nothing like it anymore. I made it a little brighter for this so it'd pop out of the mix a little more. The walls were still shaking in my house though! I haven't had this much fun playing an instrument since I fell in love with drums back in high school. Not sure how I never cared about bass before, but the sheer balls of the instrument is addicting.

    LOVE that tone! And, I totally get what you're saying, when I get a good bass tone it's hard to put the thing down and stop playing.
    Don't expect much, it's not like I'm a Rocket Surgeon...

          Well, it’s only going to make you a better musician! Playing with my fingers has really shown me how much more aware of playing on or behind the beat I have to be and I know that’ll translate to every other instrument eventually.

          Thanks for the tone compliments, gents! I certainly have to give Squid at least half the credit for that!

                        Awww shucks.



                        You guys can download the preset here- https://www.dropbox.com/sh/79cbfz8by...KChGDaXxa?dl=0

                        You'll have to download the cabs in that link as well. I posted screenshots of the cab blocks so you can see where to load them in. Like I said above, this was initially Squid's preset that I've tweaked to hell and back. I really don't know what it sounds like in comparison to the original one as it's been a few months and 3 basses later. The original probably sounded better!

                        As soon as I got home from work today I was right back in my studio pounding away on the thing!

                              That tone!

                              :wubbed:

                              I've always loved bass fingerstyle just as much as picked.

                                Has anyone else tried loading up that preset? Budda can't get his to load and I was wondering if it's an isolated issue or not.

                                          I've never much liked King's X, but the tone you've got there is killer.

                                            I have it, but haven't tried it yet. I'll do it tonight or tomorrow though and see what I get.
