In this lesson we will review alternating bass. I slow it down and show how the bass goes with the melody. I also go through each section of the song slowly and then run through it at tempo. Please let me know how you are doing with learning the material. Thanks.

Thanks Corey and Alex.  I'm really enjoying the tune.  I can feel my playing getting better too.  I'm starting to hear the melody in my head and have my fingers go to the notes ... as opposed to thinking of patterns / tab etc.  I've got a lot of work ahead and am enjoying the journey!

Hi Corey ... really enjoying this tune.  Here's where I am ...

It's getting there.  Still need to work on getting the fingers to do all the right things.
