This playlist is one of my favourites, regardless of how obvious or simplistic it may seem. Not only does it provide useful information from an actual working professional, but it explains how one is not required to become an amazing ‘flashy’ bass player to become successful in terms of a career in music. I am grateful that he has made these videos, as it is this kind of information that needs to be shown to beginners as well as those (such as myself) who remain in awe, unnecessarily, at other bass players. The most valuable lesson I think can be learned from this?
