hay lunchbox you got a great start and if I were you I would check out rusty's vids on how to play phil stuff. I am a music teacher with two degrees in music and rusty is the man! To get the sound you are looking for try playing just notes on your bass not songs and listen to your tone and work on that. most of your tone comes from how you articulate the note "pick", your EQ., and how the note ends. for phll sound use a 2mil. pick. in your vid. you said that your ear is not the best, well what are you doing about it! try earbeaters its a free program : } this will also help with fundamentals in music theory. start at the beginning and work your way through it. the best way is a little at a time that is do a little every day. best of luck from upstate NY. peace mike; link to earbeaters http://www.earbeater.com/
