Been so busy with work I haven't visit the channel in 6+ months. Looks like you trimmed up bro! Looking good! 😀

Thanks Mark!! Excellent lesson which incorporates the circle of forths/fifths and the grouped mj/mn/dim triads. I have been working on the circle of fif/fourths by itself. With this video I can now exercise a combination of exercise in one run. Great lesson, thanks again.

I have lessons at a local music school but I cant find an actual Bass teacher at any of my local music schools, they are all Guitar teachers that teach a bit of Bass and for that reason I feel that there is something missing, especially when it comes to techniques that are specific to Bass. Your content is great Mark and well presented, I am considering only using TalkingBass and cancelling my weekly lesson … a 30 minute lesson isn't cheep. The courses over at TalkingBass look like great value, not to mention all the free content. Has anyone else moved from private lessons to on line only … your thoughts ?

Does Sims send you free pickups or are you just YouTube rich
