Bass Mini Series #4

This mini series for bass guitar consists of  four sessions over consecutive weeks.

Each session is essentially independent, but there will be a flow to the sessions. Each will look at some of the most iconic bass lines that shape how we play bass.

More details to follow shortly on specific artists/songs/bass lines.

You can purchase just specific session or ALL sessions for a 25% discount.

 

 

What we’ll be covering

This is session #1 of our mini bass series where you’ll learn some of the most iconic bass lines that shape how we play bass.

The artists include: Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, Queen, Thin Lizzy, Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, The Beach Boys, The Bee Gees, Chic, Led Zeppelin and many more. We’ll look at two or three of these during this, and the other, sessions.

We’ll provide more details on the chosen bass lines/artists just before the course.

In the session we’ll be learning some of these classic bass lines as well as focusing on correct techniques, underlying know-how and the usual suspects of the chords, rhythm and feel.

In addition to learning how to play these great lines, you will also learn why they work and look at some different ways of how you can take the same bass lines and start using them in your own playing.

It’s always best to attend live rather than just buying the materials.

This mini-course of 4 sessions is a sequential series, so you will get much more out of it by committing to all 4 sessions (recommended and it has a discounted price).

As usual, the session comes with a comprehensive set of support materials.

 

Materials

  • Lesson PDF – this is usually provided after the live session. This means that the PDF is comprehensive and focused on what was actually covered to fully complement the live Zoom recording of the session.
  • Any backing tracks used will also be made available.
  • A Zoom recording of the complete live session.

 

Who’s this session suitable for?

Beginner to intermediate players (bass and guitar alike).

 

Home practice

The session is 60 minutes long; don’t expect to master everything during the session. The tutor will go through all the key parts, demonstrating them and discussing the associated techniques and know-how.

The real work is done by you afterwards. Armed with the materials (PDFs, backing tracks and video  recording), you’ll have all the tools to work on things at your own pace.

 

Online: Live Attendance v ‘Just Materials’?

It’s always best to attend live. Obviously there are certain occasions when players just can’t make it live – this is where our ‘just the materials‘ option comes into its own. BUT we much prefer players to be online with us.  WHY?

Live keeps the whole thing real.

With a live group present, the tutor is not just following a script and sticking to prescribed subject matter. During a live course, the tutor’s alternative explanations, off-the-cuff little gems and general commentary are where the magic and insights lie.

Your actual presence means you’re able to quiz, prod and ultimately shape the lesson to be of real practical value to everyone. You can ask your own question(s) there and then! We’ve found over the years that if someone gets stumped early on in a course their interest can just drop (even worse if you’re just catching up using the video recording). If you’re thinking a specific question you’ll not be alone; it’s always best to ask.

Live means a more dynamic and interesting course.

You can tweak proceedings in real time, remove that misundertanding or mental block, slow down a particular section and go into more detail, ask for something to be explained in a different way, encourage the tutor to discuss peripheral but essential issues, home in on bad habits and seek practical exercises to fix them, get an answer to an aspect of ‘theory’ that’s troubling you, etc. If you’re not there then this is less likely to happen.

 

Booking a place and buying options

When you book you’ll have two options:

1. You want to join this live Zoom session.

You’ll receive the joining instructions on the day. Being live, you’ll be able to put your own questions directly to the tutor during the session. Choose option 1, This live lesson and materials.

2. Maybe you’d like to attend but can’t make it on this occasion?

You can buy the materials and receive them after the session (i.e. lesson PDF(s) and access to a Zoom recording of the live session). Choose option 2, Materials only.

3. Buy all four sessions up-front for a discounted of 25%.

As with option 1, you’ll receive the joining instructions on the day.
