I'm a team of one when it comes to Online Bass Courses. It's very much a labour of love and I don't have people to bounce ideas off and certainly no Social Media Manager.
But, I don't need them - I have you!
It's taken me just the three years to do my first Q&A but here it is, the Qs being provided by some of you on YouTube.
The video is probably a little too long actually but there are timestamps (see below) so you can get straight to the bit you're interested in and avoid my waffle.
If you'd like to ask a question in future, subscribe to my YouTube channel. That's where I'll post when I need your input.
Make sure to scroll below the video for the lessons I mention in the video.
