Hi Daric…ur tutorials are easy to follow and you make it sound fun and i like that kind of lessons..I'm a professional percussionist and and i wanted to do something diferent on music and just started with electr bass…theres something going with me..i do study very at home and hit all the notes and i know my fret boards but when i'm with my teacher i get messed up..
