April 2019 e-news ?? ? busy recording & filming...
Sorry, it's been a while...
Greetings to you all, and I hope your year is progressing well. Welcome, new subscribers (& thankyou!)
I'm having a break from performing, using the time (wisely, I hope!) to write new music, producing in my studio (fantastic singer/songwriter music scene here in Brisbane), giving some guitar lessons (via Skype), and filming new video content for my YouTube channel.
I've been adding a new video each week, some performances, but also some discussion pieces, lessons, and 'show & tell'.
(You might even find previews of tracks I've been recording for my next CD...)
There's new content being added each week

Michael Fix introduces six own compositions, whose grooving bass lines serve as exercises for the right hand. The pieces train finger and thumb independence, palm muting, and control of sustain and dynamics, to ensure that the bass line stays separate from the melody.
