:) Got all data right after sending my Donation, great material! :)

Would be good to group the licks by difficulty (3 Levels or so).

Also it would be useful to propose a sequence of Videos for beginners and intermediates, such as “must view first”, as there is so much material (I refer more to the site than to the licks of the day).

Sure, that list is old and needs to be updated, but i have generally listed the records that inspired me, and i havent listened to ALL records;-)
The P-funk style isnt really my thing – i dig it, but never “explored” as such

great site marlowe, its my primary ressource for new input. thank you very much for all youve done. one thing id recommend you to work on is the “recommended listening”. i think you should include more JB, e.g. the fantastic live cd “love power peace” featuring bootsy. also the JB’s in general, like “food for thought”. and lyn collins’ “think about it”. and itd be cool if you put up some lessons teaching p-funk style as playing parliament-funkadelic but also bootsy’s solo work is a very good way learning this funky feel to ONEderstand the funk in a pure way. thanks again for your work.

I would like to donate $20 and receive the 50 tabs. What information do you need when I send payment via paypal? How do I obtain Bass Lick of the Day tabs for newer lessons beyond the 50 listed?

Many people wants to have the videos locally, so they can acces them anywhere anytime. Great, that you can use the transcripts:-)

Hellow Marlow,
I downloaded the 50 tabs for my $20 and I am pleased. You also sent me 300 videos, by mistake, I guess. It seemed overwhelming to download all of those when I can go to your site and watch and listen to them individually as needed. You are doing a marvelous job. Please keep it up. I was supposed to sit in tonight with a group cqalled Blues Bobby and Bluesnake but was a bit under the weather. There is always next week. I don’t refuse many opportunitys to play

Hey Marlowe,

great job. i couldnt think of anything you need to change aside from the things that have already been mentioned and will be fixed in V2. I think that organization is the biggest issue. but as I said im looking forward to the new version. Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge. with economic downfall its hard for a person to afford private lessons these days, sometimes even hard to buy materials. this has been a giant help to me, and I spread the word to aspiring players around. I hope everyone does their part of donating at least a little something, so you can eat and stay warm.:)

Thank you and yes you are absolutely right
For version 2 of the site the existing material will organized so it will be easier to find specific information.
Regarding “programs” it would be fantastic to have this kind of progressive lessons.
Problem is that I personally just have time right now to do selfcontained lessons and not a whole “method”.
And I dont think there is THE ONE method, you gather up bits and pieces over time, when you are ready for them.
I myself have tried 100 hundreds of method books, and get bored after chapter one;-)
We all want that method that will make us great players fast, but….It doesnt exist IMO (or is to boring to strictly follow).
Thats also probably why there exist so many “play like a pro in 7 days” type of scams, ha ha.
That said Ill consider to do some progressive lesson on certain subjects:-)

I love your site and have spent quite a bit of time on here over the last couple of years. The site has grown and the number of lessons is amazing. My only issue is that there may be too much information. Instead of following any kind of routine, I end up stumbling upon a lesson that looks cool and following along to the best of my ability. My suggestion would be to set up general lesson plans. Perhaps different programs depending on an area of skills or difficulty. For example, a scales plan would consist of something like, Day 1: Lesson Scale1 for X amount of time. Day 2: Lesson Scale2 for X amount of time, etc. By the time you finish a given program, it should be pretty solid in the learners mind and hands. I think that by following related lessons in an organized manner, that it would enhance the learning process and help to solidify some fundamentals. I am sure you could even find some more skilled and knowledgeable users to come up with the plans based off of existing lessons.

This is just my suggestion. In any case I will keep visiting, and thank you for all of the work you have put into this site.

Hi Thomas

I was able to view videos, (in work, before a move to a new proxy – end of last week). Now I get “WHITE RECTANGLE of DEATH”. I inspected the element and it seem to point to youtube, (blocked in work by firewall). Is this my problem and how come I was able to view last week?

Thanks (Excellent site – a great help)

Using the browser from my Android device the mobile theme was broken last time I looked at it today. Am typing on it now but only got readable pages when I turned mobile view off.
