David’s educational approach in this course goes way beyond just learning bass lines and grooves. “It’s important for players to learn the entire shape of a piece of music, note-for-note, from beginning to end. The memorization process of learning complete songs, with a beginning and an end and some twists and turns in the middle, will develop the ability to play and work in the real world of the working musician.” Learning the 50 mini-songs that David has prepared for you will get you well on your way to that real world.
