Lesson 1: Right Hand – emphasis will be on fingers as core bass technique, along with awareness of pick technique and stylistic differences.
Lesson 2: Left Hand – using all four fingers in playing basic rhythms to various chord sequences.
Lesson 3: Putting it all together – learning and playing a classic song (TBA).
Number of lessons:
Three lessons, each 75 mins long. One per week.
Note: these are live, online, interactive group sessions.
We try to layer these lessons so that we cover off the more straight-forward elements early on and gradually build up to the more complex subjects. The bulk of each lesson is teaching (usually with a minimum number of questions taken along the way) but we dedicate the end slot for Q&A. With the lessons being online, assuming you are on mute, you can play along with our tutor or practise an exercise without interfering with anyone; if the tutor asks, and you’re so inclined, you can go on-screen for one-on-one coaching in front of the group.
We’ve always recognised that the real work takes place after a course and so we provide a comprehensive set of materials for home practice; these vary from course to course and can include: additional PDFs, lesson TABs, backing tracks and snippet videos of examples/exercises used during the lesson. Over and above learning the song(s) our objective is to give you the tools to self-improve.
This course is for bass players only; any level is fine as we’re starting from the beginning and teaching the what to relative newcomers and then how and why to the more experienced players. There’s something for everyone in all our courses and the follow-on materials should help in both practising the song as well as understanding and applying any techniques and relevant theory covered.

Whatever level you are, you’ll have lots of takeaways to work on later. If you’d like to go through the course please call or email.
