Our second guest instructor!



Yet again, I'm extremely excited to announce another guest instructor...please welcome Jeff Hughell, our SECOND instructor to join the faculty! I first got to know Jeff at the Warwick Bass Camps that take place at Warwick HQ over in Markneukirchen, Germany, a few years back, and after doing some guest solos for his solo albums and getting a feel for his amazing style and bass playing, I knew I wanted him to be a part of the Low End University community. Jeff is primarily a 7-string bassist, and currently plays for Six Feed Under in addition to his large body of work with other notable metal acts. His first lesson, "Finger Independence with Tapping", is now LIVE in the library with many more coming over the next few weeks. If you aren't a member yet, join the community today and let's kick your bass playing into gear! 



Additional new content includes our Q&A video for February 2017, our first lesson from Kilian Duarte focusing on "harp harmonics" and how to use these in a chordal fashion, and some recent lessons on breathing while playing and properly ad-libbing over whole-note based bass lines. 

Need anything? I'm hanging out in the Forum daily!
