Happy New Year!


Hey everyone, 

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas/Holiday week, and that you have an equally awesome New Years weekend. I hope that 2017 is YOUR best year yet and that you can make some great strides in the things you love as well as your bass playing. If your bass playing is a part of your New Years Resolution, I'd love to hear what it is! It's certainly always a part of mine...remember: set short term AND long term goals and let them support each other as they develop! 

Our latest content includes our Q&A for December 2016, a lesson by request covering various fingerpicking patterns to use with bass chords, and a fun shift in our usual topics with a lesson focusing on band marketing. In this lesson, I list my five biggest "DONTS" when developing and marketing your band in today's industry. I know SO many of you are in bands, and as I manage the database for our "Member of the Week" feature, I notice almost all of you have active bands and projects you're working on. I think this will be a hot topic for many of you and an interesting subject to explore.

Coming soon is a full "COURSES" feature here at LEU, and one of our first courses will focus on this topic and YOU guys will be able to contribute content for it. See L#136 for more info on how to get involved.

See you soon! Have a Happy New Year, and be safe out there!
