Very inspiring Ed! I wonder how soon in the lessons were you able to completely finish a song to play on? I’m a complete newbie here and still in just Module 5. Any helpful tips would be greatly appreciated Ed. Thanks! :slight_smile: :grinning: :grinning:

Hey thanks @daniel.dumaraos !

I actually had some bass experience from years ago before I started the course and I think the first song I made it through was Hey Joe by Hendrix. Then again I’ve never really made a song 100% faithful to the original - I usually get to about 95% and think “good enough”. Sure it’s good to perfect segments for the sake of practice (learning fills or riffs etc) but you also need to build fluency and have some fun.

I would say now and again just find a song you like, learn the basic riff or chord progression off the internet and just go banging through it. If you like a song but it’s above your skill level for now, nothing wrong with fudging your way though it for now and redoing it later when you’ve levelled up a bit :grinning:.

Greate advice @Ed ! I was having second thoughts getting into play-along tracks at first thinking that I may not have yet the right foundational skills to even begin with it. Thanks again.
