Parallels (HD Remaster)

Here’s an “oldie” – my second YouTube bass cover, recorded in 2008. I tried to make a remaster out of it, although I don’t have the separate bass track anymore. At least YouTube encoding now is much better. The audio and video quality should have improved a bit overall!

Online Lessons – 1st announcement

Dear friends. After the “Sort-of-tutorial” videos that I published recently, I have been receiving requests to give classes online. I do have experience to teach in music schools and I am currently gathering the necessary gear and information to be able to teach bass lessons by Skype.

I intend to start with this project by September. Hopefully it will provide a chance for me to share my experience as a bass player in general terms and, in particular, what I have been learning through almost 30 years of studying and playing the work of Chris Squire.

I would love to hear your feedback about this, whether you are interesting in learning bass or if you had experiences with online lessons either as a student or teacher, so please post your comments or email me.

Stay tuned for more updates.

Thank you!

Miguel
