So I've been a bass player for a couple years now and one thing I've wanted to do for a very long time is do bass covers on Youtube. Now that I actually have a camera and some decent recording equipment, I've finally got the channel up and running! I have a few covers already, so please let know what you think of them! Any feedback, criticism, suggestions, things like that are much appreciated.


My first one, Anthrax - "Lone Justice":

Budgie - "I Can't See My Feelings":

I really like your tone, man. What's your setup/signal chain?

On all of my videos so far the bass is going into a Genz Benz Contour 500 2X12. I mic it up with a Shure Beta 52a and give it some compression and basic EQing, usually just adjusting mids and stuff. Glad you like it!

Yes, great sound!
Ive watched Powersurge & Lone Justice, i must say you did a good job Image
There are small play-in-time problems for Powersurge, here & there your playing is very slightly shifted.
Other than that your feeling is nice and the finger technique is good for a guy who plays bass for a couple years (well im no bass player but as a guitarist it seemed to me your moves were precise and agile). Lone Justice was awesome. Keep on playing!

Thank you very much! I appreciate the feedback. Thanks for pointing out the problems with Powersurge too, I like to know when I'm off even a little. Hopefully that one still turned out OK? I'm still having trouble getting used to being on camera while playing; I know that isn't a big deal but it throws me off big time. Once I put more and more of them up, things should get smoother. Thanks again!

As for having problems while playing on cam, just get used to it by filming yourself playing as soon as you can do an entire song.
I used to train hard on a song before trying to record it, but now i record all the time. Most of the shots are good for trash (especially at the beginning of the practice) but who cares, nobody will watch'em lol

Powersurge is overall well done, one have to listen to it carefully to notice imperfections.
You already sound more than decent despite your lack of experience and if you're not content with this, that's a good thing cause it means you got a large room for progress :)

Sweet, thanks for your input. It's greatly appreciated. I am still quite young but I'm really happy with how far I've come along in such short time. I've already been able to play in multiple bands and I'm quite confident in my abilities but I'm always looking for ways to improve my playing. I've thought about recording all the time but never really did so, I think I'll give it a shot. I should have a few more covers coming shortly too. Thanks again! :)

Two more to add to the bunch:

Hand of Doom:
Youtube: show


Seek and Destroy:
Youtube: show


Neither are perfect, but I thought they turned out nicely. You musicians out there will notice the problems with the Seek cover but I was happy with how it turned out so I posted it.

Two more to add to the bunch. A personal fave of mine from Metal Church and an old school prog rock song:

Metal Church - Hitman

Youtube: show


Kansas - Child of Innocence

Been a while since I updated the thread, but I've got like 10 new ones. Here's some of the better vids from that bunch below. I'm pretty sure adding the youtube tags jams the threads, so to avoid doing so I'll just put the links to each.

Iron Maiden - Hallowed Be Thy Name
Overkill - Feel the Fire
Death - Crystal Mountain

Also, a few non-metal covers that turned out nicely:

Kansas - The Devil Game (Yes, there are a few mistakes in this one, but the song is hard as hell, cut me some slack. TJH3113 commented on this so hooooollly fudge that's an achievement in and of itself.)
Face to Face - You've Done Nothing
Jethro Tull - Hunting Girl

You should cover some Sodom songs, man. There aren't too many for their less known songs on YouTube. Oh, and you should also do "Raining Blood"... with the chaotic ending!

Oooh, I might do Tired and Red, or maybe something from Persecution Mania. I'll see about doing some Sodom. Also, you may like to know that I actually have a future cover planned that'll be "Postmortem" and "Raining Blood" in one run. It'll be a special occasion video, like my 50th or maybe sooner. :D

It has to have the chaotic ending though, or else it ain't real! :P

Dude, "Christ Passion" would be pretty awesome to play, I imagine. Even songs from their not-so-classic albums would make great covers.

I LOVE Christ Passion. That song is a freaking riff tornado. That's noted, I'll definitely give it a go.

I'll keep in mind that chaotic ending. It's the usual ending right? With all of that mayhem just before the rain comes back in? Or is there a version without that thunder that keeps going?

Yeah, the regular version. Too many times I've watched covers wanting to see them play the solo, but I've been let down. You're a bassist, so obviously you won't play the crazy guitar solo on bass, but it would still be nice.

Any specific Priest? I plan on doing Stained Class again soon. My old version was terrible so I took it down. Priest is fun because the bass lines themselves are rather simple, so there's lots of room for playing around.

And M_O_T I started learning Christ Passion, I can play up to the burly thrash break in the middle, and I plan on finishing it later.
