  3. I agree with that. Which subject do you lecture in?
  4. I love this, especially the sentiment surrounding the video. Great song and love your singer’s style. Brilliant you got a retweet from Madness. Check this out folks, it’s great!
  5. That band sounds like fun and yeah of course be great to see some performances. I’ve got another Ska video lesson you might be interested in too if you are making up your own bass lines. https://youtu.be/NVp-oc4ajIc
  6. Interesting question. Some good answers too. I tend to agree that players express themselves in many different ways. In my experience of playing professionally and teaching for over 25 years, I hear ‘emotionally charged’ playing from all standard of players but there isn’t really one particular way this is expressed visually. The question you ask about whether technique and theory gets in the way of playing is often asked by players inexperienced in these areas. Once you have a good understanding of these two areas, you know that they always enhance your playing. That said, mastering these areas doesn’t always mean you are a great player. The short answer is learn as much as you can, play as much as you can, and don’t worry about other players and their musician journeys.
  7. Ok. Just checking but do you use 1 and 4 in fretting hand?
  8. Hi, do you mean playing the octave pattern on two strings or jumping up to the octave higher on the same string?
  9. Great, glad the lesson helped! It always amazes me the amount of information in that diagram.
  10. If you understand the Circle Of 5ths, you learn one of the most important concepts in music theory. This circle gives you information about keys, key signatures, major & relative minors, intervals, chord sequences, enharmonics, and much more. Video lesson and free PDF download.
  11. Glad you enjoyed it. Had fun making it.
  12. Yes exactly that, we are just jamming the solo section.
