I guess it'll just be this thread... I reckon one or two a month is about the right frequency. A barrage of daily submissions from the same person could grow tedious... especially if it was me 😐

I already have a noodle in mind. And I have something a little more ambitious, but still crap lol, lined up for the one after.
I think your right about frequency 1 or 2 a month.

Cheers guys for kicking off the new Noodle Bar! :drinks:

Really nice contributions so far and I like the use of YouTube. I have a recent noodle to add myself and will upload it next chance I get.

Is there going to be a new noodle thread each month?

For the sake of simplicity, there’s going to be one continuous Noodle Bar thread (this one!), which anyone can contribute to as and when they choose. I’m going to give it a plug in the General Discussion forum once a month, just to encourage people to have a listen and hopefully get involved.

The issue with uploading playing a cover version in Soundcloud.com is that they may remove it?

They might do... as may YouTube, but the detection software thingy they use is fairly hit and miss.

For an isolated bass part you should be fine (even more so if you make a complete mess of the cover version as I tend to!). Less so if you're playing along to the original.

A new Month it is, so time for a new noodle... :)

Been messing around with ways of recording better videos, I'm slowly getting there but this was a bit of a test run really. I've had a go at recording the audio direct for better quality. I've also realised I need to come up with a way of starting / ending these better so its not quite so abrupt. :blink:

I've bought a simple ABY box to split the signal from my bass, taking a line to my amp (so I can hear what I'm doing) and another line to my little Boss BR80 recorder. I then lined them up in iMovie.

Anyway on with the noodle... Used a looper for this one which I know is a bit cheeky as it's not strictly naked bass as it were but ah well... just this once :) Each part is layered as I play it and nothing is pre-recorded so I don't feel too bad about it... also in traditional noodle fashion my timing is a bit ropey on the twiddly section, but being a noodle a second take didn't seem appropriate :D



Having kicked things off for another month l'm looking forward to seeing / hearing what you chaps are working on :)

Lovely stuff. Nice use of the Looper. I think Looper tracks are fine. Probably should of been allowed in the older style noodle bar lol.

One thing I noticed is the end section when you played a little harder and faster at approx 47 seconds, the notes seemed a bit clanky rather than ringing out. Very low action?

I will record a noodle in the next few days. Also will re record my last noodle which I deleted (by accident).

Ok here's mine. Sorry for the bad camera work.
My basses action is very very low atm so its a bit noisey the strings clank a bit. Most of that is actually the bass acoustically itself, rather than what's coming out the amp. I sort of like it and sort of don't at the same time lol.

Nice :)

I think your bass sounds great, new strings?

New(ish) E string. Older one was a bit noisy, had a very pronounced rattle. But I had a E of the same brand and gauge kicking around that sounded a bit better. Cut for a through body fender mustang thankfully it fitted.
Back to flats soon, although I've been enjoying rounds.

Different strings for different basses I find... I love flats on a P bass but can't imagine my Wal with anything other than rounds... it's got to be rounds on a fretless for me too.

I'll be out of action for a while very shortly, so I thought I'd get this done whilst I can. Here's a Casady-inspired riff that I use for keeping my fingers from seizing up (s'not working that well this evening..! :blush: ). As video seems to be the latest fad, I've shot this with my webcam, one take, no edits (as you'll see..!) directly into VideoPad from my armchair, using our Cort fiver, MM p/up, tones centred. The audio track is raw Reaper, rendered then added to the video. Another one for the Noodle Pot; enjoy.

Cool old school vibe. Would of sounded good on a semi acoustic bass, flat wounds etc. Actually reminded me very slightly of one of maccas lines.

Great stuff dad... I like the little riff at around 1.05 you run around a couple of times... could hang a tune on than :)

Nice noodling guys!

I'm being lazy... but here's a quick excerpt from something I'm working on. It's a very simple bassline - I'm sort of going through a "less is more phase" with my playing. But it might just be that "less is less" ;)

Drum track and strings included for context. Jazz bass with rounds:

I'll try to do a video next time.

Haha! Cheers Doug. You think that sounds 80s? That's funny... the intention was to capture something more 70s sounding. Maybe you were on the mushrooms during that decade and missed out on it :lol:

Been messing around with staccato style playing like this recently, I really think it adds expression to a bass line.

Sounds odd but the bass kinda reminds me of Interpols Evil.

I like that alot! Liking the name too. However is that the floor cracking and creaking along
operated by your foot? As that is deemed use of a unregulated effect ;) haha!
