Would like to donate but I know nothing about these tabs or how to read them
Are tabs simple to read (to understand?)
Please help before I donate to get the licks and the tabs
Thank you

Yes, the jazzy vibe is popular. Pentatonic is great, but stretching out a bit is helpful. Learned quite a bit from the videos.

Very Nice Marlowe…but is it ok to practice everyday each day for 5 hrs straight when you just started playing the bass?

I absolutely love this one – but it’s a bit beyond my standard! Something to aspire to though. Btw, I can’t seem to find any way of looping these videos – am I being stupid MarloweDK?

Hi Marlowe,

I like this jazzy lick. Can you make some more videos on jazzy licks the coming weeks?

Thank you,

Hi MarloweDK,
what drum machine are you using for your licks?
Can you post some patterns, loops or settings?
My problem is to find a valid way to play your licks using my drum machine (GrooveAgent) so i like to know wath are my alternatives. (I own a Pandora PX5D too). Thanks a lot for your job!
