    Gospel, Jazz, Rock, Blues, Slow, Zouk, african music and more...

    I am a new member of the forum. Thank you very much for the book.
    Please, as a self-taught person I have succeeded to play many rythms (gospel, jazz, blues, rock, zouk, rap, african music, etc.).
    But I need to be evaluated in other to fill my gaps.

    These are some bass chords I am playing :

    I also need an online certification.

    Would you give me some advices?

    Thank you for doing this; it looks good.
  11. very nice!
  12. Thanks for this it's a great help. Just reading through. Page 5 "playing the 5th fret on the G string (that's two strings away) produces a m7 (a D)"

    Shouldn't that produce a C? Or have I failed at understanding it? Sorry if I'm mistaken. I'm new to this level of theory :)

    You're correct, the book is wrong at that point, 5th fret on the G string gives you the note C.

    There are a few typos here and there in the book, as noted early on in this thread. I don't have access to an editable version, I'm afraid - only the PDF.
