Using ‘The Chicken’ to get some respect at your local music store…

Cool little video for you today.

If you’ve ever been to your local music store to test out a bass (or anywhere for that matter where you have a small audience) and your mind started drawing blanks for any cool grooves you could play on the spot…

…Here’s a nifty little jam that might be able to pull you out of a tight spot 🙂

It’s simple to learn, easy to put your own spin to, and if you pull if off right will certainly get you some dog-gone RESPECT from onlookers because it’s just so darn HIP… LOL

Hope you enjoy it.

Peace and chicken grease,


PS. The fretboard formula is about to return with a very cool surprise twist…

PPS. Please leave a quick comment below if you’re hip to the video, or I may have to talk smack about you to anyone who will listen 🙂


A little modern Gospel flava…

Hey gang, here’s the final video of your three part mini-lesson series. Been getting some requests from the church boys, so…

…If you dig the modern/contemporary gospel flava, chances are you’re gonna ‘cut up’ on this 😉

Oh, by the way, in case you missed part 1 & 2, here’s the links again;

Mini Lesson #1 : StarChild

Mini Lesson #2: Christian Rock Bass Solo


PS. Hit me with comments if you wanna continue the mini lessons. I need to hear from ya!

1/16th note ‘rock’ bass solo… :-)

Ok… In today’s mini-lesson we’ll quickly go over a bass solo from a Christian rock styled song…

This is something a customer specifically wrote in asking for me to cover and he was nice about his asking :-). Whether you play ‘Christian Rock’ or not, you should give this a shot and see how how your 1/16th-note-string-crossing technique is 🙂

SideNote: In case you’re wondering, the “1/16th note” reference is to the ORIGINAL version of the song that has a different drum groove to what I used in the video.
