    Great explanations, but your tab at 21.37 stopped me in my tracks, I was so frustrated because it didn't make sense to me that I was sure I was reading it wrong, even though logically I knew the tab was wrong.Please remember that for people like me this is the first attempt at playing Bass and learning tab so most of us will blame ourselves for being stupid and give up!
    I was about tocall it quits until I read some comments about other tabs also being incorrect, please address this as ignoring it does not help.
    Apart from that, great lesson.Mike

  2. hopefully this will get my dad playing bass instead of complaining​ about the cost of my habit lol but good video also my dad has a hang nail that stopped him because left hand wasn't available for guitars​ in his youth and of course he over looked bass I almost did to scary if I would have
