Life In The Bass Lane
It never hurts to go take some lessons,
If nothing else it will open your mind to New music ideas.
Sometimes its also Necessary to get your mind primed by
some fresh ideas, Or new material.
I Think anyone of any skill level should take some upgrading
to their Playing styles and or abilities.
You upgrade your car,
You upgrade your house , appliances,
So why not upgrade Yourself..
Or at least your bass playing, It never hurts to
Pick up some great stuff, From a Talented instructor, I love
When Good bass players teach me Cool Stuff on the bass.
That`s a huge benefit and having them there to
Show you till you get it right, helps too. I Cannot think of
A better way to improve your playing, Adding new Grooves and Riffs to
Your Personal Arsenal of Bass Moves, Shuffles, Grooves,
These investments in your bass playing future are the best
thing you can do for your playing life ,
These set your tone your Bass Playing Personality if you will.

The Funk in you and Your Smooth flow,
Your Personal Boogie,
And mostly Your Very Own Groove….
The One nobody else can do.. just like you.
And Nobody……… Does not matter who…. playing any
Instrument……. is Ever Too Good…
And for that Reason
We all keep playing ,
Day after Day Year After Year,
Or No Reward , We Play. That`s It.

From a Qualified Pro Is ,Doing it the best you can.
Doing the part about learning and
Practice, That`s is on you,
And you can pickup local lessons, Depending On Your location
Should Be not much of a problem.
And its a fairly inexpensive, For 200.00 you
can get a pretty good Tuneup on your bass playing,
Thats about 6 -7 hours of lessons,
And take a tape recorder to your lesson,
If Your Instructor Does not mind,
“Tell Him You Are Not Going To Market, The lessons.
It Makes Learning a lot easier,
Believe me sometimes its hard to remember what
A instructor taught you in a quick hour,
But if you are able to record it ,Even with a little cassette tape player ,
Even a little battery operated one. This Will make
all the difference in learning or not learning
in most situations.”Its Very hard to remember
Every little chord change and note in one take,
So to get the most out of your lesson dollar
this is the technique I try to use myself.
It just really helps to tape the lesson,If its only 1 hour lesson
Then you can take it back home,
And go thru it again and again.
It works Great for learning what you were showed.

He in my Personal opinion is one of ,If not the Best Modern Bass Players I have heard. Now I Know that`s a huge statement. This guy is awesome. This is the Style and ease young Bass Players only dream of being able to accomplish. If you want to hear what the modern bass guitar is suppose to sound like, Then do no more than visit Play Bass Now The Gentleman that runs the site and teaches these great lessons goes by the name MarloweDK , I have no personal knowledge of any personal info about the guy. Other than he is very generous with his talents, (offers free lessons to site visitors on YouTube ) And it appears like he is maybe from Europe Somewhere but again not sure. More than extremely talented. Like I said I.M.O. One of the best there is. With a rather wide Vocabulary of Bass Skills.
And the lessons he does charge for are mostly just $ 2.00, Very reasonable ,And there is a huge archive of lessons to choose from. I personally have purchased lessons on the site ,Without any problems.
