@howtoplaybassdotcom The correct is “de nada” with “e” and you can use when
you want to say “Thank you” to Brazilians. If you wanna thanks another
latin countries – like Buenos Aires – you can say “Gracias amigo”. It means
“Thanks buddy”. Hope I has Helped ;D

Personally I’d do a similar thing but with James Jamerson instead of
McCartney. Jamerson employs more stylistic devices and gets rhythmically
more advanced than McCartney ever did….but learning from McCartney would
make you understand the bass to a level that few players seemingly do these
days.

Thanks Paul I just subscribed to your e-zine. I practice a lot. I only
started bass about a year ago – aged 52. The reason should come as no
surprise to you, initials JJ!

If you learned McCartney lines in chronological order that would give you a
really good grounding in bass. You’d get simple swing and straight 8th note
lines from the early stuff (plus some quarter note lines). You’d get into
16th note lines in the mid 60s period. And then in the later period you’d
get into some advanced stuff – pedal points, slash chords ,melodic
counterpoints etc etc.

@lualabastida I was going to reply ‘Da Nada’ – but suddenly thought that
might not mean what I think it means. I’m hoping it means – that’s cool or
it’s OK! Glad you enjoyed it.
