This section is for students to access bits and pieces that we covered in lessons. Videos are grouped into Starting Out / Journeyman / Expert there is also a section at the bottom called ‘Classic’ that are some older videos I recorded in 2009

Starting Out

9/22/2018 How to play Wicked Game by Chris Issac. This is a nice simple tune to get your groove on with. In its simplest form is only 3 notes played over 4 bars of music.

Lessons

5/06/2018 How to play Tennessee Whiskey by Chris Stapleton. This is a more complex bass line than most of the Starting out lines…If you can play this then maybe consider some of the Journeyman lessons.
