    Great masterclass from a true great bassist, composer, improviser and human being. Drew has been an inspiration for me all my life and to see him play and teach is a dream come true. I have purchased his other two classes and enjoyed them as wellHighly recommended!!!

  2. 5

    I got a lot out of this masterclass. It follows the description very well, and my biggest take away was his description of how to play with clarity and intent.

    IMHO, getting the opportunity to hear Drew improvise on Autumn Leaves during the intro is worth the price of admission alone.

    I think there is something here for bassists of all levels, but players with a solid grasp of music theory will benefit the most.
