How is the bass playing going?
And I will put this here for other bass players who haven't tried to lean this song yet:

The guy's name is Victor Wooten and I've been trying to play many of his songs to varying success.
And I can't for the life of me remember that electric drummer's name! He's the one with the crazy homemade instrument. Yea that's right, he's the drummer.
This is a Victor Wooten song that he made off of finger-training exercises and by far one of the most inaccesible songs on bass there is: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=G7oCm-hZawQ
I WILL play that song one day! Thats how I've kept myself playing bass this long. That one long term goal made in middle school keeps me going to this day.
Picking a song and nailing it in a week is all good, but there needs to be progression beyond that to truly make yourself desirable as a bass player. You need to get those fingers fast enough to stun people during an audition! Mediocrity doesn't pay bills in the music world! Set the goals FAR higher than you think you are capable. If you follow up with enough diligent practice, you should be able to nail some spots on band and find out where you want to go from there.
As an aside: most of the songs i wanted to learn while i was leaning how to play bass seem silly to me now. keep your ears an mind open, because AMAZING bass players hide in very obscure genres
