Hey MarloweDK, I notice that your right hand/good phrasing, is what creates the feel behind the licks. Ie; the accents placed soft/light/touch. Can or would you expand on that? or maybe a lesson on phrasing? Great site, thanks!

Sorry, its not a step by step site, its more like a encyclopedia of licks and ideas, and most are not beginners stuff. But look under the beginner section, there is some stuff and i have a few on simple chords like this http://playbassnow.com/learn-chords/ch10-playing-major-triads/

Loved it 🙂

Real fun to jam to exploars other option than playing just A Pentatonic Like playing E Pentatonic, F#m Pentatonic (relative minor)

Or even some modal stuff

Darn, that was beautiful! Why was it so short? I could have listened to that for hours 😉
Are you using any effects?

Thank you!
Im using Korg px4d’s amp sim, compressor and a bit of reverb

This is great stuff.

You have a real nice ear for melody.

The backing track is very helpful!

Thank you!
