Here’s my latest No Treble bass lesson on how to play across the bar line. Understanding these concepts begins to create an elasticity in your groove and feel.

Don’t be a ‘chancer’- instead start learrning what is common vocabulary for any drummer. There’s a myth going around that drummers are the only musicians that are responsible for laying down and keeping the time. This is a false narrative! Everybody is responsible for keeping the time. You must be able to understand how the rhythmic subdivisions that you are playing are felt against the pulse- period!

The Power of Intention- The ‘X’ Factor to YOU Becoming a Better Bass Player!

Intention is all about your determination to succeed at becoming a better bass player no matter what obstacles are in front of you.

But intention is a whole different animal, where no matter what, nothing will get in the way of your success!
This is the first installment of a new video series that I’m producing called Rants & Raves. In this first episode, I discuss and reveal the biggest kept secret in music education.
This video series is based on all things music centric related to music education, the music industry, improvisational methodologies, practice principles, long standing myths, personal stories and the rest; breaking down (what is in my opinion) the worst and the best!
If you have any requests for subjects that you would like my views on or questions for me that I can include in future episodes, then please feel free to leave your comments below.
Why would I serve you filet mignon, when everybody’s lapping up the dog-doo? Because I can! It’s a simple answer to a not so straight forward question, but it’s based on years of investing time and money into my musicianship skills, which include studying with some of the best jazz and composition teachers on the planet, along with playing with some of the best musicians and recording artists around. But this still begs the question of why there is so much “junk science” being peddled as “the real thing” by so many unqualified people, all over the internet, who mostly, haven’t played with anybody of repute or paid any significant dues as working musicians.
