I would like music/TAB images from the videos attached to lesson pages.

Thanks for the feedback @NipperDog ! I’ve heard that from others as well, it has been duly noted for future courses + B2B improvements.

And @emme, a good option for that is to download the sheet music / tab PDF from the Course Extras, which you can either keep up elsewhere on screen or print out - https://www.bassbuzz.com/lessons/beginner-to-badass/extras/download

@JoshFossgreen you’ll be missing a real opportunity if you don’t make Hysteria the next course’s Billie Jean :rofl:

Seriously. Hysteria. Module 4, no later. It would be the perfect homage, skill-jump wise.

I hate that song, but if it’s part of the course, I’d force myself to do it.

I have a very open mind to music but simply cannot get into this Hysteria tune by Muse at all.
I will stick to this one…

I mean, Hysteria is a stadium rock anthem. Heavy radio rotation at the time. Made it up to #9 on Billboard. It’s been used as a NHL hockey team walk-on song. It’s not like it takes a very open mind - it’s pretty mainstream really :slight_smile:

I guess Def Leppard’s was too, lol.

Yeah, I like Def Leppard’s version much better than Muse.

Well, regardless, it’s an iconic, cool and interesting bassline. And extremely popular. Just not easy.

Perfect intermediate course analogue for Billie Jean.

Would say Hysteria is much harder compared to Billie Jean. I never really struggled with Billie but Hysteria is hard to play right.

I really dig Muse and I personally love Hysteria by Muse. Even got the latest album in vinyl!

I’d love to learn the bass line to the song ‘Freight Train’ by Elizabeth Cotten.

Edit: At a much slower speed :grin:

Yeah, I know. I was just joshing with you (pardon the pun) :rofl:

But seriously, if you want to learn a song, go for it!

I think the one thing I’d like to see in the next course, which I was hoping would be in this one, is lessons on playing scales across more of the neck. Yes, we learned the major and minor finger patterns, but we didn’t really venture too far beyond the “home” position. I realize I can map out the neck for a particular key on my own, and I definitely will, but I know pentatonic scales are the hip thing to know and it would have been cool to have more of that, especially to practice on our own time.
