    I really enjoy the way you teach, but I would like to know your approach to fill idea’s. I also would like to know your take on seeing the whole fret board as one unit. I’ve been playing bass since I was ten years old and I’m 55 now, but I just don’t like being in the light so too speak. I’ve been playing for a local church near me for the last 4 years an there has been no change to me in the way I play, but everyone keeps on telling me man you sound good I just can’t see it HOW CAN I FIX MY SOUND

      Thanks for the question! Like I always say, never too late to grow. So I appreciate you reaching out. I come across this situations a lot with different students. Here’s a few tips to think about. Break up the fretboard in sections as oppose to “one unit”. I know how overwhelming that can be. Learning your scales in different postions as well as being comfortable with connecting modes will definitely help in that area. And I’ll also be going more on depth with that along with creating fills inside of basslines. Thanks for the question again! ??

    Hi Daric! These slap courses have been great! I have a question though, when doing these pull offs, how curved should your left hand fingers be? Should the tips of your fingers be practically pointing at the string or should they be laying flat? I hope I was clear enough with the visual of the question. thank you in advance for any advice!
