Having some time out from work and fancy a few bass lessons? Well, get in touch and we can set something up over Skype! Reasonable rates.
I'm an advocate of learning as many great bass lines as possible to improve your vocabulary and theory knowledge. I've gathered a great library of transcriptions and would love to guide you through some of your favourite baselines! Whether using notation or TAB.

Singular Sound BeatBuddy drum machine, in perfect condition, with the following premium libraries / kits:
Vintage Ludwig kit
World percussion kit
Gig basics beats

This is a brilliant practice aid (the ultimate metronome?) and can be used live. I've moved over to a computer based backing track system as I'm playing more guitar now. It has velcro on the back and I have the box.
Tap for intro, tap for fills, tap for outro, etc, etc. Dead easy to use and very simple navigation. Practice time turns into real good fun!
Their blurb (take a look at the site for videos, etc)...
The BeatBuddy is a drum machine in a stompbox, or a drummer pedal for short. We’ve meticulously recorded professional drummers and paired their samples with an algorithm that results in the best sounding drum machine you’ve ever heard.
In addition to being the most realistic drum machine on the market, it’s also the easiest drum machine to use. There’s no fussing around with sequencers and controlling the beat during a live performance is as easy as stomping on the pedal to add fills, transitions, and outros.
