Intro [13 Jul 2010|10:07am]

[ mood | calm ]

Name: Ryi
Whereabout: Borneo Island
Website: Err.. I dont have one.
Bass level: No idea. I will need to ask my friend about it since he the expert. lolx.
Fav Bands: Maximum the Hormone, Nightwish, The Pillows, [Actually there lots of bands i love to listen to. Mostly Japanese bands.]
Fav Bassists: Honestly, no idea. I started playing bass because i like the sound the bass produce and not because i idolize any bassists. But there might be some that i like, e.g: Tissue Hime (No idea what his/her real name. Found his/her video taken from nicovideo) and my friend who taught me how to play bass.

Type: Ibanez, 4 string, Hot pink, [That's all i know about my bass. I choose it because it among the cheapest bass in the store that produce a good solid sound. There are bass that are cheaper but had lousy sound so might as well fork out a few hundred more to buy a better bass.]
Name: I haven't decide yet even though it had been months since i bought it. I had been busy with my final semester so yeah neglected the bass for a while.
Fun fact: My parents have no idea i own that bass. They are old-fashion and believe that learning musical instrument is a waste of time & money. ^^; Though i intend to learn it until i can play on equal level as my friend. I really admire him as a bassist. He has versatility in playing bass. He a sought after bassist from where i came from. ^^;

For all you Jrock bassists. [30 Jan 2010|08:36pm]

I've started a community that will hopefully be buzzing with bassists who love Jrock. My hope is that we can create a close community for all levels of bass players to discuss their favorite bassists, post their covers, share tabs, etc. It's brand new, and if you'd like to be a moderator or help me with anything, just let me know.

About me....
Name: Vess
Age: 19
Location: California
Website: should I link to my livejournal or something?
Bass Level: Intermediate. I've had previous music experience, so I'm doing fine with the scales and sight-reading and techniques. But I've really only been playing for about 2ish months.
Fav Bands: SID, Infected Mushroom, Maroon 5, Incubus, Radiohead, Justice, Marilyn Manson
Fav Bassists: Aki of SID, Michael Madden, Twiggy Ramirez, Tim Skold

About my bass..
Old Hartke bass. It's something of an heirloom given to me by an old friend, but the neck is bent and the pick-ups are loose. I'm saving money for a sturdy Fender or a Squier modded P-Bass.

Type: Hartke SB-15 4-string
 Name: nameless

Fun fact: My friend used extra thick strings to strengthen his fingers while practicing on the bass. The bass itself also has a couple of dead notes, so playing with it is never really fun. I really enjoy tapping over plucking, and I'm slowly learning to improvise polyphonic harmony. Also I fail when I play standing up (I blame the strap). All in all I'm not really an avid fan of tabs; I enjoy reading sheet music or playing by ear.

About my bass..
I don't actually have one....But I'll use my school's bass because I'm playing it! :D 

Type: it's a Fender (not a Squier by Fender)
 Name: It doesn't have a name, but I'll call it Mini me. xD

Fun fact: The strap's too loose....and the colors are kinda chipping off, and the area where you can plug in your bass is broken so I can't ever hear myself. xD And it's cooler than my friend's jazz bass. (:

Fav band: Luna Sea, Rammstein, Pixies, Jun Onose (solo works), Guns 'n Roses, Mucc, Dir en Grey and a bunch of others..

About my bass...

Model: ESP "Amaze J-Five" Custom Shop. '97. Made in Japan. ( It has 5 chords, 21 frets, Adler body, Maple neck and Rosewood fingerboard )

Name: ジェイ-San (J-San)

Fun fact: I bought ジェイ-San in a shop where all the clerks think that Fender is better than ESP. So, ジェイ-San was hanging in a quite dark corner of that humongous shop. I've always wanted an ESP bass, so, when I saw ジェイ-San it was love at first sight. Btw, the clerks that sold it to me didn't actually know that it was a "Custom Shop" one. I've only discovered it when I was home.

Forgot to post this in my original post, so i guess i may as well give you guyz the update. I'm currently in a band called "Kamikaze". We aren't an all j-rock band. we play "kokoro no nai machi" by Mucc, "dakirai" by Mucc, "cage" by Dir En Grey, "isho" by Mucc, "runaway" by Linkin Park, "papercut" by Linkin Park, "hypnotize" by System Of A Down and other j-rock songs as well as the songs we write ourselves =)

banging on pots and pans [06 Jul 2008|10:53am]

[ mood | calm ]

So I have finally joined a band, we aren't a jrock band. We don't know what kind of band we are yet. But we definetly wotn eb a jrock band. My friend Ryann asked me to join sense they wanted it to be an all girl band so of course I said yes, plus I've been wanting to be in a band for a while. I'm on bass, friend Ryann on guitar, friend Gabby on guitar, and their friend Kelly on drums. We dotn have a singer, but right nwo we aren't worried about that. Our drummer kinds sucks and she wont compromise and try and learn an easy song that is by bands that she isn't really into. This annoys me because I don't like half the bands that we all as a badn have mentioned to try and all learn a song by, but I am compromising. Oh well. I started learning Cage by Diru, but got bored and than started learning Lost Heaven by L`Arc~en~Ciel, but my bass teacher got bored of it and now I am learning Killing me. And I am learning dance dacne by Fall otu Boy [kill me, I really hate them] for my friend Amanda and Dirty Little Secret by The All American Rejects for the band.

Oh yeah we are called Banging on Pots and Pans. I absolutly love the name.

[ mood | groggy ]

Name: Li
Age: 13
Location: L.A.
Bass Level: kind of beginner... ^^;;
Fav band: Dir en grey
Fav bassist: Toshiya (Diru), Reita (Gazette), Shuu (Girugamesh), Chiyu (SuG), Saga (alice nine.), Intetsu (Ayabieru)

My bass
Model: well... mine is in the making, I haven't finished making my bass yet. But it's green and has a thunderbird body. haven't decided on the neck yet, since I want to switch to fretless ><
Name: Keroroppi (My bass's name is a cross between "Keroro" from SGT Frog and "Keroppi", that Sanrio frog, bcause I love lime green and frogs ha ha. )
Fun fact: My most respected bassist is Toshiya from Dir en grey obviously, also they were my very first Jrock band to ever listen to and see live. Funny thing is, I picked up the bass because of not only Toshiya, but also because I thought it would be so much easier to play than guitar because of the fact a standard bass only had 4 strings, less than a guitar's. Oh, how wrong I was XD Surprisingly, this is supposedly the same reason Toshiya picked up the bass and I only found out recently XD

I started playing bass around October of 2007, and my dad has been a bassist since he was a few years older than me. It helps because he can always help me! XD But I have tiny hands so it was really hard for me starting out because I had to STRETCH MY TINY FINGERS just to reach from the first to the third fret TTATT

Also I am looking for Jrock stuff to play on bass, whether it be tabs or notes, I don't mind either one! Though I want to start reading more, I've tried to not look at tabs too much (though that's hard, I still do it anyways lol) also I don't have any version of guitar pro, so that's a problem D:
