    I think your terrific to teach jazz bass through talking bass.net. My love for blues bass takes my whole soul over and puts me in another solar system. I am connected at the hip with my U Bass. I am 4′ 9″ tall and this is the perfect instrument for me to pursue my love for bass blues through your lessons. Cancer has touched my life so my focusing on your lessons has help me get through this ordeal . Thanks very much for your dedication to teaching bass jazz and blues.

    How can I find the previous lessons referred in this video? They are not listed under the Lessons Map (or I could not find them)

    Hi Mark. Im just curious here. regarding the Gm7 in the 4th bar, why is it not G7 as in the 10th and 12th bar? is it just applicable for this progression? and the same for the A7. Why is it not Am7 considering this is in the key of C major? thank you in advance.
