    Hi Tony. You have helped me here before and as soon as I get my tax check back I will be enrolling in your bass academy. I spend hours a day practicing a strict regiment and really enjoy your teaching style and approach to the instrument. I was going through one of your free lessons the other day. Im pretty sure it was the diatonic triad or along those lines. You broke out into a Ebm scale and the way you were playing it was so "fast and dreamy". I do not know if you were going up and down or what but it just sounded amazing. Sorry if this is too broad but how do you get that sound? And what pattern are you playing on your scale to make it sound so clear but extremely fast. Thanks for you help.

    Hello how are you?
    Thanks for the message and I'm glad you like the lessons and approach.
    My way of teaching is very systematic and goal driven.
    So whatever concept I'm learning I try to make music out of it.
    The question is broad :) but basically my concept is
    combinations of scales and intervalic patterns.
    I also study different approach to Chord Tone Patterns and
    connecting Chords together with passing tones.
    When I improvise It just comes from all this focus work.
    It's really all just improvised. You learn how to use the color and characteristic notes against the Chords.
    I'll help you with a good practice routine.
    Keep in touch.

    Thank you. I appreciate it, and yes I know that was a broad question, but you know how that is. I will be in touch and I look forward to learning with you and your academy.

    all the best.
