  • Hi Dan thank you for your bass classes quick question the tasty lick in E I’m confused the 14 th fret? Isn’t 16th on G string E? Idk maybe typo anyway you talked about where do you want to go as a bassist I am wanting to go the way you’ve went to play and sharpen my reading chops I am a 6 string guitarist and just started bass 6 months ago went through a few books in guitar and piano years ago but notoriously a very slow reader so thank you I’m diving into it at your recommendations
    Sincerely jim
