    Excellent video. Any strap recommendations?

      Minotaur straps are well made and cheaper than some of the expensive leather options

    Hi Mark, I have 2 Quick questions!
    Q1 – I have just purchased my first Bass Guitar and it came with a thin strap when I try to play the Bass it feels like I am getting no support from the strap and the guitar is a dead weight. I’m in Australia can you recommend a decent but reasonably priced strap that would work a lot better?

    Q2 – I am very interested in learning to read sheet music, I have some mates that have decided to start a band more for just family entertainment and parties than professional gigs (until we get better), can you recommend any websites that have a good selection of sheet music for beginners (Bass Only) both recent hits and older music ( 60s,70s &80s).
    Your help and advise would be greatly appreciated,
    I really love your training material makes it easy to start learning properly.
