  1. I don't use the active EQ on my ESP D-6 at all. I leave the knobs centered and get the tone I want with my hands or a pick.

  2. Good beginner bass…. I play the STERLING STINGRAY…. your good player

  3. Awesome and very accurate breakdown…My 1st bass Fender Jazz passive electronics 1977 I still have the bass… Its in your hands knowing the function of the knobs enhances your sound(tone)!!

  4. A true testament that it’s ‘all in your hands’. Thanks bruh!

  5. I am a very beginner bass player I have an Ibanez long neck I really enjoy watching some of your lessons but I've always noticed that you should turn up the volume on your base your voice is louder than the base can barely hear the notes that you play and for us beginners it would help to mention which fret and which string for each note keep up the good work thanks again for your dedication

  6. Hey Daric , i enjoy the vids and thanks for sharing your expertise , I would like to know whats your video recording set up for doing your bass lessons online on youtube , and what would you recommend for starting to record vids from within the system vs. basic recording with the laptop mic or speakers .


  7. I have to say your my favorite bass player bruh and another great sounding bass is the Sire check it out.

  8. Because of your sound, I bought a Jaguar in Red – I love it and its not expensive at all. Made in Indonesia but no complaints about the quality of the neck or the body.
