New video from my ‘Bass Concepts Series’ featuring short bass video lessons. 

Learn the ‘forwards’ and ‘backwards’ positions of the minor 7 arpeggio and why having these two options are useful when playing bass lines. 

Two exercises and a free pdf download come with the lesson.

How spooky! I was watching this then realised that I bought your book on Amazon last week, it's brilliant thanks. After 40 years of being a guitarist and bassist in numerous bands, I've decided to actually learn to read music (the book is: Reading Music for Bass Players).

Ah, great you got my Reading book. I hope you have success with that.  

I’m in the first week of a coaching a reading program with Greg’s Bass Shed at the moment.   It’s so great to help bassists learn to read, especially the ones that have been playing for years.  I know it’s hard to learn to read if you are an experienced player as it feels like you are going backwards.  But it’s so worth it and it does all click after a while.

cheers!

Yep, another top video Greg. Useful and concise.

I'm going to have a look at "Reading Music for Bass Players". Maybe it IS time ;)

EDIT: My wife is ordering it for my birthday

      I have made a video lesson to help anyone wanting to learn 7th arpeggios.
      Arpeggios provide you with chord tones which are the essential 'building blocks' for bass lines.  The notes of the arpeggio are chord tones.  It is that simple!
      This lesson will give you five positions in which to play the maj7 arpeggio, getting you to play in different areas of the neck.  You can apply these five positions to other types of arpeggios too and use them to start on any root note.
      The possibilities are endless and this is just what you need if you want to play exciting bass lines and get into playing walking bass.

      Out of interest, do you have an area of music theory that you particularly struggle to understand?  
       
      Do you feel that it is holding you back in developing as a bass player too?
