    I only came across this channel very recently... I feel it is the first time in YEARS that my theoretical understanding has advanced substantially. All I need to do now is practice the concepts and ideas, and I have the feeling that I know how to.

    Why I love these lessons:
    - They are clear (to me)
    - They are presented at the right pace (for me)
    - They represent the right balance between theory and practice (for me).

    He's good... I just feel that he doesn't really go into substantial depth in terms of theory. To be honest, I am not convinced he has the depth of understanding for it. But he's great for hands-on stuff.

    Don't fall like I did many years ago.

    Playing bass gigging 6 nights a week and studying classical violin, capable of reading fly sh1t at 20 paces.

    Had a gig backing a very energetic act, guitar, piano, drums and me on bass.

    First number was fecking horrible got lots of filthy looks from the pianist and the artist, it was not until it ended that I realised I'd read my part as treble clef.

    You have been warned :lol:

    Marty’s song tutorials are great. He really does know what his fingers are doing and can explain that. The way he “na na na nas” through things is actually useful too. Must check out the theory vids but been there, done it and forgot it. Might give it another go...
