    Hi all,

    I'm off out to California for the NAMM show in January, and the week after - January 28th - I'll be giving a masterclass/clinic/workshop in Campbell, California.

    It'll run from about 10.30 in the morning til 4 or 5 in the afternoon, and will look at as many aspects of playing bass, writing music and performing as we can get to in that time, touching on right and left hand technique, solo playing, timing, tone, looping and solo playing and composition, as well as plenty of time for question and answer sessions so all your bass-woes will get dealt with!

    this is the third year in a row for this event, sponsored by AccuGroove speakers and Looperlative audio products, and promises to be a great day.

    The cost for the day is $55, which will include a pizza/sub/equivalent lunch. Watch this space for news of an evening gig with very special guests!

    please email me or send me a private message for more info and to find out how to pay.

    see you there!

    I'll certainly try to make it. Steve, I went to your 2004 masterclass at Bob Amstadt's house...I was the chap with the sunburst F-Bass. It was a very inspiring session. Bob's new Looperlative device looks intriguing.

    Hey DigThemLows--I'm playing funky jazz tonight (Friday Dec. 9) at the SkyBar in Sacramento from 9-1. I'm also there next Friday and Saturday...come on by if you're free.

    I paid for all my gear myself. Well, me and MasterCard.
    Uh, maybe you should call the venue, Steve. They've got it listed as an open mic night!

    See you at the clinic!

    Yeah, I've spoken to Judy about that - it'd be great if a few of you called and asked about the gig, mentioning the website thing... it's daft that it's not up there yet...

    Great class Steve! :D If I'm still in Northern California next year, I'm definitely coming back.

    I took a few pictures when I wasn't notetaking...will probably put them up soon.

    Great to meet all of you also! And loved hearing the Accugroove and Looperlative. The whole thing was inspiring and eye-opening.
