    Don’t think we didn’t notice your smile while playing the Victor Wooten lick. Clearly you’re having a bit too much fun there, Mark!

    Love this. I’ve been looking to play more “guitaristically” for times when our keyboardist doesn’t show up for rehearsal or is late (which is always)!

    Hi Mike, you rotated the selector of your pickup at 20:19. I think that if someone try to do it again he needs a lot of pracitce!
    Thank you Mike for your great lessons. You are my teacher and day by day you make me love bass.
