So it's been a while since my last post. Apologies for the radio silence.
I've been having great fun playing and practicing but got myself into a bit of a bad habit.
By lesson 10 I'd found that I could play a lot of what I loved to listen to. It's so much fun. I just found that by listening enough I could figure out how the music was being made.
What was helping is that i'd made it past lesson 10. So very many of the concepts and principles shown in the course have

Or 10x, 5x, 1x or whatever ratio seems appropriate.
Yes I agree with Paul this is a fair way of giving members an advantage and introducing potential mew members to Thunder row.
Hello to everybody. It's been almost nine months since I last updated my blog. I wish that I could say that it was nine months of furious activity practicing and becoming an actual bass player. Sadly, that was not the case.
I took the break from TMBG because I wanted a live instructor to help me focus. From the start I never liked his teaching style. He told me that I didn't need to be able to read music in order to play music. While technically true, it didn't impress me very much.
My "new" Fender B-Dec bass amplifier arrived in its original inner and outer Fender cartons. It was unused, despite being at least six years old.
That was great, but the downside was that nobody had ever updated the integral software. As a result, a lot of the MIDI features, including uploading and saving song files, were not available. I decided to rectify this.
My initial internet reading, mainly on the Fender forums between 2006 and 2009, filled me with trepidation.

"It's time to master my four string fretless........."
That'll teach me to get over-confident.
Two months later, I'm just beginning to feel that I may be getting somewhere with it.
