    Evan Brewer - The Notes on the Fretboard
    http://members.jamplay.com/bass/phas...-the-fretboard

    Of course, every bass player needs to know the notes on their instrument, sometimes even more so than guitar players! Evan breaks it down in this lesson and helps you realize it's not as daunting as it first may seem.

    Danny Mo - Leaving Space
    http://members.jamplay.com/bass/phas...-leaving-space

    Sometimes it's more about what you don't play when it comes to getting into the right groove. In this lesson, Danny "explores the space"!

    Bryan Beller - All My Loving by The Beatles:
    http://members.jamplay.com/bass/phas...-all-my-loving

    It's a real treat going through this lesson with Mr. Beller. He is a knowledgable and authentic Beatles fan and, and having played in various Beatles cover bands, he is dead on with his attention to detail and level of instruction. Soak it in from one of the best!

    Larry Cook - Finding Notes on the Fretboard
    http://members.jamplay.com/bass/phas...he-fingerboard

    As a bassist you find yourself playing roots and fifths a lot, but that kind of playing only gives you a limited area of the fretboard that you are utilizing. Certainly you may want to play different pitches from time to time, or heck just different octaves of your roots and fifths. In this lesson, Larry walks you through how to find any note on the fretboard using common shapes you probably already use.

    Evan Brewer - Double Thumb Recap
    http://members.jamplay.com/bass/phas...le-thumb-recap

    Evan shows a really cool technique where you end up using your thumb almost like a pick. It's a great "hybrid" technique that falls between finger style, flat pick and slap, and it's easy to switch in and out of. Super efficient and effective! If you like this, check out subsequent lessons to get much deeper into the technique.

    Kansas - Carry On Wayward Son
    http://members.jamplay.com/bass/phas...on-wayward-son

    Today's pick is a great progressive rock tune from legendary band Kansas. If this one doesn't help with your timing chops, I'm not sure what will!
