When we advertise TMBG has "the most comprehensive, effective, and entertaining program of self-paced bass instruction on the planet," we're not blowin' smoke. TMBG has been out for two years now, and the first (that we know of) to finish all 20 lessons is Rev. Russell Shores. (We know a number of others are hot on his heels!) Granted, the Reverend has been playing professionally for a while, but he credits Roy and TMBG with helping him solidify his skills and his understanding of music. So, how's he doing? Hear for yourself!
My opinion? Well done Rev! You're an encouragement to us all!

Muting those ringing strings on a bass can involve palm or finger use...or a scrunchie? I did not know that wrapping a scrunchie over your frets could be a practical substitute for palm or finger muting.
But, apparently, the scrunchie is now OUT and the "FretWrap" is IN.

If you're thinking of having a go at a fretless, the lined fingerboard of the new Ibanez SR370F gives you another reason to try!
FINISH: BROWN BURST
Standard SR basses offer a wide line-up, from beginner to working pros. From higher-end Bartolini pickups to Ibanez EXF pickups, they are versatile enough to play any kind of music, while SR's signature "Slim & Fast" neck gives you great playability.

Grab your guitar or bass and microphone, plug into the new eBand from BOSS, and amaze your friends, family, and fans! The eBand JS-10 is self contained and small, but fills the room with full-range sound from its 2.1 sound system and pro BOSS effects.
