QUOTE - UNQUOTE
"Cutting (the book) down was the hardest part of it, because the original manuscript was 845 pages. We had to whittle it down from over 30,000 photographs to a manageable 408 pages and about 1000 photographs. And it's a bit like a jigsaw puzzle, you know. Every time a photo's changed, whatever caption you had written for that photo has to change. And so you're sort of chasing your tail for months. '"

Performance coach/bassist David Motto offers free tips to help any bass player improve and grow.
This critical guidance is from his excellent ebook, THE TEN-MINUTE BASS VIRTUOSO.
Ridding Yourself of Inhibitions
You don't need to be reserved when you play the bass. It’s not a desk job. Musicians are not judged by the same standards as people in the workplace. You have more freedom to behave the way you really want to when you play a musical instrument. So, start this process in the practice room.
If you can’t be yourself when you play the bass, when exactly will you let the real you emerge? While you’ve got your bass in your hands, infuse your music with your deepest desires. Let your inhibitions have the day off. Go for it!
GET RID OF PRACTICE BARRIERS
Eliminating Roadblocks in Your Life
So many bassists place barriers between themselves and playing their instruments that they never get around to practicing. Others only squeeze in one practice session every week or two. Imagine how much more fun you would have if you played bass regularly. You’d improve faster and never feel guilty about not playing.
Make it easy to start practicing. Don’t let physical or mental barriers get in your way.
