Trying Chordal

    Just ordered Chordal Approach and Big Droppin's . This is going to be a totally new approach for me in technique. I have never heard of playing chords on the bass only in linear form. So can't wait to try this out. I play only for my own enjoyment and I am in my mid fifties with some arthritus in my fingers so I feel playing the bass keeps my fingers limber. I had to give up on the six string due to finger dexterity so hoping this will be a great substitute. I was inspired by a recent post about using your chordal approach in Christian music and that has me excited to try. Lets hope this old dog can learn a new trick or two.

    Thanks for ordering. Please feel free to answer any questions. I am arranging some solo bass stuff for people to play in Church and will post here when they are available. I've had a bit of a setback with some knee surgery last week and sitting at the computer makes the knee stiffen up. I am also not quite ready to be playing all that much
