L'Arc-en-Ciel are one of my favorite bands. I've never gotten into Gundam really, but I love this track and felt it tied in nicely with the video series' I'm doing. Furthermore, this is really the style of bass I'm looking to excel in, especially with my J-Rock band Colors UK, so I thought this would be a really cool and relatively challenging (for me) piece to learn.

I'm into my second week of owning the bass and I've put in the hours of practice, but obviously I'm not always spot on yet. This song is actually originally played with a pick, but I wanted to learn it finger style to help improve my technique. There are a couple of mistakes, some not so tight parts and some minor details / variations I missed in this performance, but I felt the video was still a lot of fun and the performance has a good sense of humor. Overall I'm pretty happy with it :)

This time around I didn't work out the entire thing by ear. I used a tab provided helpfully by youtube user BassNoShiroDesu, ironed out some things by ear, and used his video to get a better grounding in general. Thanks for the help, dude!
