Here are a few shots of my recent clinic tour in Tokyo, Japan.
I met some wonderful people during the clinics. I made new friends and reconnected old friends I hadn't seen in years.
I'd like to thank
Hajime Hirose from Sleek Elite, Ken Smith Basses, Toshio Horiba from Prosound Communications Inc. and Ikebe music stores for making this happen. I'd also like to thank Will Downing for providing me with a great photo, and Steve Fulford for his great photoshop work.
The gift of music is truly a gift that keeps on giving.

This is Takeshi. One of the more well known bassist in Japan who came to assist me. We shared a dialog of life thru our instruments. A great musician and story teller.
