    Oh man, He was/is such a wonderful inspiring teacher with great insight. I found his YouTube videos a few months ago and I think they're great. He always tried to make me think.
    And he seemed a gentle, good hearted soul. He will truly be missed but he leaves a treasure trove of instruction behind for all to benefit from. Look up "Real Bass Lessons" on YouTube.

    Awful news, just awful. I unfortunately never met the man in person but I will sorely miss his Youtube stuff. Thank you for making me a better bass player, Jim!

    So sad.
    I personally loved his approach on the YT videos. He was my favorite online educator.

    Oh damn. That's terrible. He was such an enthusiastic guy, and super communicative on his YouTube channel.

    I posted about my Jaco sig under his video on his Jaco Custom Shop and he was genuinely stoked.

    I've learned a lot from his channel. I hope it will always be there as a memorial to a great teacher.

    No way. His video of the buttercream Player Precision convinced me to buy it. I then watched many of his instructional videos and learned a lot. He was such a happy presence. RIP.
  17. Such sad news. I had only discovered Jim's channel a few months ago but I loved his videos. His enthusiasm for the bass was readily apparent. I am glad to see from the posts on here that he had reached a wide audience and helped a lot of players.

    Thank you Jim for your joyful, generous spirit and your infectious love of bass and music in general.

    Groove on, holmes.

    And yes, yes I would love to do that exercise one more time through the whole cycle of fourths.

    Let's go.
