    Hey Ant,

    My son and I thoroughly enjoyed your bass clinic in LaPlata. Thanks for the inspiration (and the
    Aguilar pedal and DR strings). We have both read "The Music Lesson" along with other books about Theory and Harmony on your suggested reading list.
    I am a fingerstyle player who has played in cover bands for the past 40 years (playing mostly rock). I have immersed myself in 70's funk and am finding the love of learning and playing again. I am more serious about playing now more than ever. I hope to attend more clinics or even Vic's Bass Camp.

    Take care,
    Wayne

    Hey Wayne,
    I really appreciate you and your son driving down from Delaware to attend my clinic at Island Music. I hope you got something out of it!

    And I hope to see you again!

    And if you love the early Funk lie I do you'll enjoy these songs:

    Glide by Pleasure
    Fencewalk by Mandrill
    Thighs High by Tom Browne
    The Awakening by The Reddings
    Pow by Graham Central Station
    Slide by Slave
    Hair by Graham Central Station
    The Same Thing by Sky and the Family Stone

    peace,
    anthony

    Also, your rule for performing (meeting 2 out of 3 criteria) was eye-opening for both my son and myself. Correct me if I'm wrong:

    1. Right people to perform with
    2. Right venue for the performance
    3. Right type of music to perform

    Upon discussing this concept (on the way home from LaPlata), my son and I made some necessary changes on what, how and who we were playing with. We are both happier and more psyched about playing.

    Thanks again,
    Wayne

    Good music, good people and good pay! At least 2 of the 3. Any 2 of the 3.
