Are you using the printed fingering? I’m not at home until tomorrow, will have a look at page 29 then..
There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know..

When you get onto Alternating Bass let me know, and I’ll re-arrange those chord onto a nice little sequence if you have not found it by then..

He does a good job as well.........I now have a fuzzed up and freaky left hand after several hours of practice, but at least am sticking with 4:3........the odd fall back to 3:2 occurs................ {} :ch :b :tup: .

This seems like a good book for me to start off my bass learning.

I ordered it as an eBook from Mel Bay, and was looking forward to an evening of left hand finger contortions, but... although I received an email from them with my account details, the order email said my order was "being reviewed" - whatever that means. I could log in to my account, but when I tried again just now it says it can't find my username. (The same username I used successfully earlier, and is provided in their email to me).

Although the payment shows up on my CC account I have no promised download link, and no account. So my confidence in Mel Bay's ecommerce technology is a bit shaky.
