Week of 5/22: Swing it hard!

Hey folks! We have a brand new Instagram account, so go give us a follow at @LowEndU - maybe we'll do some giveaways there! Don't miss out! : )

Our "Member of the Week" is Dimitris Kanellopoulos from Kalamata, Greece!

What's up everyone? Today is the actual *day* we launched one-year ago, and if I haven't said thanks to all of our awesome members enough already, I'd like to say it once more! Also just posted to the Home Page is a brand new virtual site tour of LEU, so check it out if you'd like to see what we're all about. 

Summer is upon us, and for many of us, we'll have a little extra time to spare for our musical endeavors. With that being said, it's a great time to make some serious progress on the ole' bajo. Our "Member of the Week" is Stephen Spencer from El Paso, TX! Check out his band DICODEC!

What's up everyone? I'm so proud to say that this month marks the one-year anniversary of Low End University...I feel like this thing just launched yesterday and am blown away at how fast the time flies! But, most importantly, I want to send a heartfelt thanks out to each and every one of you members who have joined the LEU community and made it what it is today. This simply isn't possible without you guys, and it's most rewarding to me to hear how much you guys are enjoying the content and how much you're growing in your bass-playing endeavors. Just, WOW! Thanks to all of you! 

Our "Member of the Week" is Marshall Jackson from Regina, SK! Check out his band Oracles of Opression!

Hello bass folk! Summer is upon us, and that's the time of year many of us have some extra time in the woodshed. I'm super excited to see all the progress you guys are making from those of you who've sent in videos, questions, etc. It's going to be an awesome summer and I can't be more excited! 

If you're an avid subscriber of Bass Guitar Magazine, check out my little feature in the March 2016 issue talking a bit about my newest book "Advanced Rock Bass", out now through Hal Leonard, and available right here through Low End University (info on the home page).

Week of 4/3: Our 100th Lesson!!!

Hello all! Sorry for a week off from our usual lesson schedule and news...very limited connectivity here in Canada over the last week or so. Once again, I've had the pleasure to meet an LEU member in every city I've been to, and it's been such a blast getting to know you all!

What's up folks? I've been doing marathons of lesson video filming to cover my upcoming time out on the road, putting some serious mileage on these cameras! Our next two Q&A videos will likely take place downtown in the middle of a city somewhere, it'll be fun for sure!
