    Hey guys,

    This brand new video tutorial is probably 'THE' most important lesson I ever give to my students...

    I'm sure you've felt completely overwelmed by the amount of information you have to learn to become a great bass player... licks, scales, chords, grooves, soloing techniques etc etc... there seems to be SO much to learn and so little time to do it in...

    In the past I've definately suffered from this feeling. It felt like I was drowning in a huge sea of information and just couldn't figure out how I could learn everything I needed to.

    In this brand new video tutorial I tell you exactly how to stop this happening...

    You can check out the lesson... HERE.

    Over and out,

    Scott.

    Cheers for that!

    Keeping a sense of proportion is useful. Being too hard or lenient on oneself is a recipe for frustration.

    I would vote to have this sticked on the General Instruction and Techniques page as a lesson all players should watch about how learning works.

    Easily the best bass lesson.....and without a bass to hand.:)

    I never had the problem you are talking about. When I started I didn't know anything music related nor did I know any band. So I had a teacher show me music. So everytime I learned something new I didn't even know what else I don't know.

    When I started I didn't even have internet and it never occur to me that a website like Talkbass existed. So I didn't have the problem many young/starting bass player have when they find the website before they have a bass and just come accross all that information in a non-chronological way.

    So in all I can,t relate to way you talk about.

    Scott, this lesson was what I needed to hear. Thanks again for your lessons. You're the teacher I've been looking for so many years. It's a bummer you don't live around here but we have the internet to thank for us being able to learn from you no matter where we are.

    Wonderful advice for pursuing any craft.
    Learn a little bit each day, and learn to find inspiration in each bit you learn.

    Everything I've seen of yours thus far has been spot on. Great lessons and advice. It really helps to know that at one point in time Jaco didn't know a major scale. There is hope for the rest of us given time and effort!
    Thanks!!
