From James Porter:
I've spent over half my life learning about all the various roles a bass player can flourish in, and the power over rhythm and pitch that the instrument gives you. I'm happy to share with you the lessons I've picked up, and hopefully to help beginning bass players have as much fun with the bass as I do.
