My job here is to pass on information and stand as a guide while the student finds their voice and best method of expression!
Now that we have concluded the 10 week intensive on Fretboard Knowledge at https://scottsbasslessons.com/ I finally got enough time and the planets aligned for a video. I was meaning to do this weeks ago, but feline challenges had made this impossible. The Anthony Wellington Video is below:
Sorry about the string noise, it has been a while since I played Round wounds. This video explores expanding your interval recognition in music, and how I work on it on my instrument. I am working on a PDF to follow along with, it will be coming soon!

Week 6 was about Pentatonics so I made a little video about some insights in exploring pentatonics! This is a video for Scottsbasslessons.com Fretboard Challenge! I made a handout to illustrate what I am discussing in the video, if it is needed.
