    He was so positive, so modest, and so good! I wonder if he has a discography?

    I loved how he shared all these cool grooves and always seemed so happy. RIP, he will be greatly missed by many.

    I wondered why Jim had not posted any lessons recently - then I saw this news. Very sad to hear of his passing. I feel fortinat to have had the opportunity to learn from him. "Now pick up your bass and play with me!"

    Super sad news. I discovered his channel a few years ago and his lessons are the only educational videos that I like to practise to.
    I hope his channel will live on. I sure am grateful for all his 'Real bass lessons'. Even though their number is now finite, they represent a lifetime supply of exercises to me.
    I would have loved to have the opportunity to thank him in person for that one day.

    Does anyone know if someone is going to maintain his website? I am sure his family are dealing with a lot with his passing, but I really want to keep supporting all the incredible work he produced. I have sent a couple of emails about purchasing a number of his books over the past month and haven't heard back.

    I sent a message to Jim's email after his passing. I addressed it to the family (hoping they would read it eventually). I included a link to this thread so they could read all of our comments. I haven't heard back, but I'm sure they'll get to it at some point. I've bought some of his books and I would certainly buy more. He was one hell of a teacher!
