    Mark I miss your Fender Jazz bass but those Sims Super Quads are genius , wonder if I can fit them on my Fender MIM Jazz , also I need a neck like your Fender with the binding and quarter inch wider fretboard.
    The Banger Lady moved out thank God so no more holding back , full blast slap-pop anytime now , I’m free to practice…
    Thanks for your great lessons , I think your the best online instructor ever.

    I`m taking Mark`s Slap Bass course and I love it. He takes you through the steps in a logical way while not being overwhelming. Mark is truly a great teacher and an amazing player. These courses are a bargain when you consider what private lessons would cost you and how many of us would have access to such a great teacher? Very few.

    Implementing this exercise on a six string bass covers a lot of notes, keeps you busy.
