This is the second of two lessons on Modes of the major scale and I’ll be covering walking basslines, extended scale patterns over the fingerboard, chords within a mode and quartal harmony.

    These lessons on modes are great.
    Is there an opportunity to purchase these video lessons?

      I’ve been toying with that idea but always been put off by the fact that they can be seen for free on Youtube. But I’ve been having a bit of interest in this so I might put some of the series up for dale on DVD or as a download complete with documentation.

    Yes, do that, Mark! I was thinking of downloading all the videos from YouTube, but decided against it for several reasons. A DVD-box would be perfect – with a nice print edition of the supplements. Also, this would be a great opportunity for us fans of your work to give something back (money) for your effort.

    Great lessons on the Modes Mark.

    It would be great if you did a structured on line Course of Bass lessons as I would be one of the first to sign up.

    There are others out there charging money for bass lessons and they don’t have even a fraction of your knowledge or capable of

    delivering a lesson that students can understand.

    Like Bjorn stated in his post it would be a great opportunity for us to give you something back for all your time and effort.

    Great lesson as usual….although I’ll probably need to watch it a dozen times to taken in all the information. Anyway…tons of thanks for spreading your knowledge ( which to me seems without boundaries). Having said that…I wholeheartedly support Bjorns idea 🙂

    Amazing! As I was watching this I had that Ah hah! moment. This is my second time passing thru the Theory section. According to the board of education, it takes a teacher to say it 7 times before it gets through to students. Since I have my interest on learning, I think 3 times is enough, counting from my 1st time with previous teachers. I will come back if I start to forget.

    Mark if you can’t teach anyone anything, it’s not your fault. There is such a thing as good teachers and bad teachers. I wonder how much effort was put into making each lesson. So smooth and thorough. For this I salute you.
