    Of course its lifetime access to the course, so since my hand healed up, I'm back in that again.

    I can say from over 30 years of bass playing, having studied bass in college....this is a solid technique course. Some of it is rudimentary, but so what. Its structured practice.

    Nowhere in sports, music, leadership, you name it, is well developed structured practice a bad thing.

    Like I say about the toolbox. Have as many tools in there as possible. You might use 5 of them regularly. But when you needed that off tool RIGHT NOW, damn you'll be glad you already have it.
    I am doing the same course right now. I'm enjoying it and it's definitely cleaning up some aspects of my technique that I never really thought about.

    There is a video to accompany the book at an additional $10 but as far as I can tell no audio to accompany it. Rather disappointing in some regards but I’ll get the video and see how that goes (I’m not to good at watching tutorial videos not really my thing but I’ll give it a go. Never know could be a blessing in disguise)

    Anyone else with any experience of this book ?
