I wanted to get this out quickly, especially to those of you who have attended my Fantasy Bass Boot Camps. Although plans for my own All-Ages Bass Camp have been moved back to Summer 2017 I'm proud to announce that I will be the sole Bass Instructor at the Guitar Workshops Plus Nashville/Murfreesboro, TN campus on July 31-August 5. I will have plenty of copies of Teach Me Bass Guitar and my CDs and DVDs with me. While different than my own Fantasy Bass Boot Camp, it's a great opportunity to study
I have decided to jump back into the TMBG lessons with the goal of eventually getting through all the lessons (a lofty goal for me).
I started a few years ago, made it through a few lessons and then life happened and it it was put on the shelf. I did use it as a reference when I needed specific information sooner rather than later.

Bass practice was the first hobby to go. Drumming was next and I really cried about that one. I really need a hands-on teacher to make sense of bass and that's not a financial option for me at the moment. The teacher I did have for 2 months helped
I haven't updated in 2 weeks. What have I been doing? I haven't played bass at all. I'm researching various bass teachers. This monophonically played instrument confuses me so much.

Keeping my fingers crossed a few live lessons will help me move forward!
