Hi Dave,

Thanks a lot for creating this video tutorial smile I think either you or someone else posted it back in february and I had a listen a few times and then veered off into a heavy work schedule. Curiously enough, I had a listen once again about 2 weeks ago, jotted down your example and started working on it amid other things musical. So your post is timely, for me anyways, as a reminder to keep plugging away smile

I was also looking at your "walking bassline clinic" videos this morning. Another thing to work on... I need another 40 years on my life to master it all... which should bring me somewhere in the vicinity of, oh, not too far from 100 smile

John

Thank you Dave. A good structure for improv. I'm very much interested in improv. Although I'm at a very low level right now learning basics. I still, at times, when doing scales or such. A certain spot will catch my mind. Want to go with it. Your video shows I'm on exactly the right track. It will keep helping me.

You might also get something from the video Breakthrough to Improv which is similar with a blues focus, free on YT..
