Lot of lessons on youtube. Any thoughts on who has the best or easiest to understand.
I'm not normally one to "big myself up", but my lessons have gone stupidly well. Phenomenally well! You can tell from my channel comments and video comments that they are well appreciated...
I mainly aim at beginners, though. Slap and pop beginners, beginners riffs, and loads of other stuff. There are some great teachers online that can cover theory, scales etc for you. I don't do that. Yet.
They are all catergorized here. I am adding to this list all the time:
Hope they help, and take care.
This guy gets my vote. He also has his own web site.
He actually teaches music rather than bass operation. MarloweDK would be my second vote.
Dmanlamius and thebassguy get my votes. Knew nothing before them and now know how to play a couple of songs. have never looking up theory and whatnot yet.
MarloweDK. Check out his version of Dolly Parton's "9 to 5".
I think this guy is worth checking out, some good lessons and technique. Cool bass solo at 1:30.
Marlowe DK gets my vote too. Very accessible too if you need to contact him. Nice guy. Chops out the wazoo, too.
Dman's. I don't post much, but it helped me ten fold, and infact, used it last night to learn the cover to Cannonball
Can't wait till I can get some money up to buy his slap lessons
MarlowDK. Great guy with great talent
Thanks guys. I'm glad the lessons helped/are helping!
And yes, Marlow is a great teacher!
I think all of them including our own Dmanlamius and HAViC5 are really good teachers. What's cool is that they all have new an different things to offer. The more lessons out there the better! I think if youtube was around when I first started my current skill level would be a lot higher.
I think this all the time!
The standard of players is going to go through the roof in the next ten years or so, because of the wealth of knowledge there is to access on the internet. It's a really exciting time to be a musician, I think!
I would have never have heard of some of the amazing underground players I have found if it wasn't for youtube, etc. And it's so great that we have forums like this where we can all get together in one place, and chat about bass. It'll only make us all better in the long run.
And I agree about having more lessons! One man's poison is another man's medicine, and Marlow and I have totally different teaching styles and methods. It's great having him there though, because if someone asks me a theoretical question that I know nothing about (this happens...often), I just point them in Marlows direction...
It's all good!
And i dig your stuff Lets do lunch or maybe exchange links;-)
And thx guys for the thumbs up!
I also like timbassix
Anybody that does Rick Funk is OK in my book.
MarloweDK all day long.
this is the guy who sold me my bass haha ive learnt alot from his lessons and i want his bass
Marlow, is there any chance I can get an interview with you for my blog?
It's in the form of ten simple questions.
So far, I have Valerie Lee, Jean Baudin, Jeff Schmidt, and Jayme Lewis. Your experience and knowledge would be a brilliant addition!
Of course, i'll put links straight to your site, and will also put a video of yours up from youtube, etc...
I can understand if you are too busy, etc. Just get back to me via a PM, it would be greatly appreciated, either way...
