I had a chance to see this monster on display in the music store this past week. The place was rather busy with customers so I couldn't get anyone to fire it up for me, but it sure looks like it could shake the rafters.

There's a new interview with Roy on the Bass Musician Magazine Website.
Here's an excerpt:
FROM BEDROOM TO BUSINESS: HOW TO MAKE A LIVING AS A WORKING MUSICIAN WITH ROY VOGT
...In the weeks ahead, several full-time bassists will share their stories with us. They come from a variety of backgrounds and performance venues. While each will bring a unique insight, I challenge you to look for the common themes in their advice and to consciously apply their collective wisdom to your own skill set.
Without further fanfare, let’s start the series with Roy Vogt…

Okay folks, so now that TMBG is a worldwide hit, we're sitting around The Learning Dock Interdimensional HQ wondering: "What next?" Well, we were knocking around ideas; Teach Me Dishwashing, Teach Me Gnome Building, Teach Me Fiberglas Polishing, when Ashley said: "What about Teach Me Music Theory?"
Not a bad idea. The question is, are there enough people out there interested in learning music theory including how to read and write fluently - taught in our own inimitable style? We need to ask some intelligent people whose opinion we respect.
Which is where you come in.
We'd love to hear what you think about Music as our next subject. Let us know. Also, if you have any other suggestions for topics you think there's a market for - and one that's not being addressed well by a currently available program - tell us!
Thanks so much!
