    “…the augumented fourth and diminished fourth are the same interval.” You were thinking of augumented fourth and diminished FIVE, right? Or?

    I feel blessed that buying and picking up my bass just two weeks ago and being a 65 yr old drummer, that I started learning bass first day with you Mark. It has been great and you made it so very understandable. I wish my fingers could follow as good as my brain has in learning the lessons. I will keep practicing as youhave so inspired me because I see progression everytime I move on to the next step in the lesson map. On top of all that you are just a very kool.
