Hi Daric, where’s the PDF for this lesson?
Hey! Try refreshing the page. It should be at the top of the video 👍🏾
The tabs don’t seem to match what your playing. I like the lesson.
Okay kinda got it figured out, The tabs start descending back from the 6th.
Hey! So I think I know what happened. The pdf is exactly what was played in the very beginning. And I started descending from the 5th note of the scale almost as is they’re pick up notes. It can be done either way but I’ll fix that for you guys. Sorry about that !
ty, starting to get the feel and sound of it.
Got it great exercise. Really made me think and stay focused, counting it really helped. I had to cheat and work it out on the Keyboard, I’m liking music notation more and more over tabs to figure things out.
So what do you do when you venture out of C
Say I play this in G do I play the F or F# my guess F#
You’re absolutely correct, in the key of G major the “F” will be an F sharp
Good thing about it is that you can use the same finger positioning for this if you move in to a different key
Should be be updated now, check it out
Can you slow it down and zoom in to yours hands one note at a time for me Im a beginner.
Thanks, perfect! Each time you move up the scale it has a different pattern. Unlike the Hanon exercises on the piano which usually have the same fingering.

Can you do a lesson on how to read bass tab?
Even you put it on pdf, I don’t get it.
If you call the note by letters , it will very be helpful .
Absolutely! That’s coming soon 😎
