  1. Great lesson….back to work.

  2. Many thanks, I've been looking for "free guitar trainer software" for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried – Peynharlotte Acoustic Smasher – (should be on google have a look ) ? Ive heard some amazing things about it and my friend got excellent results with it.

  3. Thank You!

  4. personally I think that beginers should not start doing "  RAKING " they should learn to teach the muscle memory withalternating fingering  first and once this is integrated later  they can practice the raking but not in the beginning.If you start with Raking then will get problems when need  alternating fingering.So first ALTERNATING FINGERING and forget the raking in the beginning.Any way alternating fingering produce a cleaner sound completely different from the Raking.Seem the same sound but it is not.Try to play any song only wit Raking and then try with alternating fingering and you will see the changein the quality of the sound.

  5. Hey Mark, great video! What kind of amplifier are you using in this video, and is it different from what you did with EMGtv? I really liked the tone you had in the EMGtv videos!
    Regards from a fellow bass player.

  6. This is really helpful, even for someone like myself who hasnt had a teacher but have been self taught for about five years. Now its time to go back and make things right. Thanks, Mark!

  7. Regret not having my bass with me for the next few months overseas
