Once again a little overdue on the schedule side of things.. But I hope you can get some mileage out of this one and develop playing what you sing when it comes to creating melodic ideas as a bass player or soloist. Also talked about in this podcast is the launch of my latest solo album with some clips from the record, and also the launch of Video Lessons with Janek Gwizdala. Drop by the site and check it out if you get a minute, you can check out some free lessons and have a tour of the site.
Episode four of my video podcast series starts to deal with expanding vocabulary and bringing together several concepts into one place in your practice routine, to increase the language and options available to you when you're developing ideas.
