Hi everyone,

I'm very pleased to present a new series of videos called Bass Recovery 101 on Youtube.

These will focus on my recovery for the left-hand after a stroke.

Here is the link for my Youtube Channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Th4wxgw5Bw&t=12s

Thanks

Sly

Very cool, subscribed! I worked for many years in a brain injury rehab facility and so I am familiar with stroke rehabilitation. I am very interested in your journey and wish you the best!

Subscribed as well... great idea Sylvan, looking forward to you videos, and I'll bet they will help me un-learn some bad plucking habits! :)

Here is Lesson No.2-Tempo mapping

This is a very cool practice routine that I'm experimenting with with great results so far.

what are the detail on that P bass? Looks great and awesome tone. Who's signature in on the pick guard?

Looking forward to more of your videos. They are inspiring. Not just for your story and journey, but also reminds me that I need to dedicate much more time to practice myself.

That is my first real bass. A 75 P-Bass but now nothing is original on it. It used to be the classic sunburst. A asked my luthier to dig the cut-away more for a better reach in the high notes so he tainted it kind of blue that became grey over the years. The neck now on it is a 70-71 neck that I really like. I have an old Shecter pick-up that is awesome. The bass P p-u I've heard so far. I have a J EMG at the bridge. James Demeter in L.A. back in 1990 was modifying all the bass for the studio players by bringing down the impedance of the P to low impedance with his own system. This is what I have in here modified by himself. Very happy with that bass. My ultimate axe for studio sessions back then.

For the signature, I had the great privilege to play with Roger Hodgson from Supertramp on a live tv show called Star Academie in Quebec. We played all the hits that he wrote with Supertramp and I always been a big fan of thoses basslines. So he signed it after the show. Very happy :-)

Thanks for the kind words :-)
