Such good and clean technique in this demo!

Sculpting the sound in your head: Watch this awesome demo of the Super Symmetry · 115 GeV Compressor by our friend Antti Kauppinen on his Fender American Standard Jazz Bass Fretless!

Good technique! Left hand thumb never rests on top of the fingerboard!

Thanks Wouter for introducing me to this!

Anyone with one or more devices requiring 9v power adapter I highly recommend the 1 spot from Visual Sound. Not only is the cleanest, no noise (not low noise), power supply I've ever had - it can also run multiple 9v units off of just one electrical socket! People don't often think of power adapters when they are thinking 'gear' but a bad power adapter can make a pedal or rackmount unit sound horrible!

Free tip of the day:

Practicing is both physical and mental. Many people focus solely on the metal aspect (have to learn this scale/mode/riff, etc.). It is easy to wind up with a physical injury if you don't warm up! Stretches and a few simple warm up exercises before you practice will go a long way in preventing injury. It's hard to play your bass (or any instrument) if you've hurt your hands, arms, shoulders, etc so don't neglect to stretch and warm up!

The best bass lines are those where the bass and drums have a strong relationship. (Updated article with another example)

megadeth - wake up dead backing track

One aspect of metal bass playing that seems to have fallen by the wayside in the last few years is the ability to lock in with a drummer. Regardless of the technical aspects in your chosen style of metal (or music in general) the best bass lines are those where the bass and drums have a strong relationship. The bass is often the 'glue' between the guitars and drums, bridging the gap between melody and rhythm and being a part of both. Listen to the pros and you will hear the symbiotic relationship that exists even in bands where the bass seemingly follows the guitar.

One old great example is the opening track from Peace Sells... But Who's Buying. Check out the bass/drum tracks and compare it to the full song.
