Scott Devine – How to Approach Practicing

Scott Devine’s, is a free bass lesson resource I often refer to.  As a subscriber to Scott’s mailing list I periodically get links to new videos he has posted.  I received this one over the past weekend and thought it tied in well with last weeks post on Practicing Effectively. 

I highly recommend checking out Scott’s site when you have a chance.  Enjoy!

6 Stellar Bass Lesson Websites

While I am committed to completing Roy Vogt’s Teach Me Bass Guitar course, I can’t help but notice that a number of stellar bass lesson websites have popped up over the last couple of years.  Some of these offer free tips, tricks and lessons, some are pay sites and many are a combination of the two.  In an effort to expand my horizons as a bass player I often browse many of these sites for insight, inspiration and even just a different perspective.  Now is definitely a great time to be a bassist as more and more of these sites, as well as miscellaneous videos seem to be popping up daily. 

The following 6 bass lesson websites are ones that I find myself returning to again and again.
