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

      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?

      If you are getting string noise or string ring when you are playing your bass, you probably need to work on your string muting. 
      Find out three way to eliminate this string noise in my latest video lesson.
      This will give you a much cleaner bass tone. 
      There is also details of a FREE bass ebook in the video.

      New ‘Bass Line Breakdown’ video!
      This lesson shows you how to play the bass line from Shadows in the Rain’ by Sting. 
      The bass line features Darryl Jones and is an uptempo walking line. It is such fun to play a great one to learn. 
      There is a pdf download in the description and a backing track to jam to at the end of the video.

      How are your transcribing skills?  
      I have put a video together to show you how you can start to transcribe bass lines yourself.  
      If you have always wanted to transcribe but felt it is too difficult, then check out my lesson and start using the five steps I outline. 
      There is also a free PDF with five very short transcriptions which your can go away and try and do yourself, then check with mine. 
      You don’t need to read music to be able to start transcribing. 
      Hope this helps.

      I don’t about you, but I think that Reggae has some of the grooviest bass lines there are. 
      The bass is almost always very prominent and right in the pocket. 
      I have made a video lesson to explore Reggae bass and to help you to start composing your own Reggae bass lines.
      There are a few techniques which can help you to make your lines sound more authentic. 
      I have left a couple of backing tracks running at the end of the video and you can also download a free pdf in the video description. 
      I hope this helps anyone wanting to start playing Reggae bass.
