Great fun learning these essential bass lines.
Definitely loved getting these must have magic tricks in my bag. The backing tracks with increasing tempos are an essential added bonus to master these lessons.
Great left-hand blues basics
This is a very helpful step-by-step foundational series in blues. It doesn’t move too fast and allows you to learn at your own speed as you build upon the previous lesson.
A lot in this.
I like this course, and I like the boogie octaves.
