Bass Cobwebs

For the first time in ages I've got together with a bunch of guys to play music. I'm buzzing!
We played for a couple of hours - mostly just jamming around ideas, a guitar riff here, a bass-line there. Covered a pretty good range of stuff within a general hard rock area - some fast and funky and some slower and laid-back.

I'm definitely the weakest link - the others played much faster and more fluently than I did. It's been a while since I last played much bass and it showed, though I did manage to keep up most of the time by keeping it simpler than I would usually. I'll need to do a bit of ear-training too - there were a couple of places where I got lost and took a while to work out what I should have been playing.

So, the cobwebs have been dusted off (the bass, at least) - now I need to get down to seriously polishing up on technique...
