  5. One of the best bass lessons ever. Not only teaches arpeggios and building chords but also really helps you to understand the relationship of the major and minor scales AND movement from chord to chord in the harmony. Thanks Scott!

  6. Really valuable lesson learnt, explained clearly and concisely. Even after years of playing it was nice to re cap on some basics, but great lesson all round. I also saw Scott play about three years ago with Steve cropper and the animals and he was superb, subscribed!
