If you’re new to the bass guitar, or you've never studied it formally, this is a great place to start! But I'll do more than just help get you started; we're going to lay the foundation for your success, I'll help you avoid costly mistakes, and set you up to achieve your bass goals! Recommended for beginners and intermediate.
I’m always on the hunt for the best ways to practice, well, anything! Music, fitness, life; I just want to be the most efficient human that I can possibly be with the best ROI. Don’t you? This course represents my journey, after years of study on this subject, being applied to both the bass guitar and musicianship.
Not sure what scales are, or how to use them? Or maybe you just need a quick refresher course on the most commonly used scales? This 8-part video course will answer all of your questions! Topics covered include the major modes, pentatonic modes, sequential & intervallic exercises and more!
This 11-part video course is similar to the Essential Scales above, but centered around the most commonly used arpeggios. Topics covered include single and two octave triads, 7th chords and more! Arpeggios can be the hardest thing a bassist ever plays, so let me help you get there!
Rhythm & Timing
Groove and pocket are everything for bass players, and this 10-part course covers the basics of rhythm and timing. Topics covered include the essential rhythms to know, groove placement, developing your internal clock and more! This course is great for both beginner and intermediate players.
How to Get Hired
In this 12-part course on groove, I share some of my favorite go-to tricks for getting the gig, keeping the gig and getting called back for more gigs! I learned them the hard way (maybe my next series will be called How to Get Fired) and I’m passing the wisdom on to you! If you've ever wondered, "what's really expected from a good bass player?" then this course is for you!
How to Create PERFECT Basslines
In this 10-part course I'll show you my favorite tricks for creating memorable basslines; grooves that support the song as much as they turn heads and shake booties! I developed this course over 20 years, using real basslines that I've played on hundreds of stages and dozens of studios.

Essential Funk Vocabulary
This 7-part a crash-course will teach you the basic techniques and tools that you'll need to play funk music. I'll show you the funkiest way to play ghosted notes, muting, staccato 16th note syncopations and playing the filthiest grooves and licks that you can shake your stank-face at!
Slap Techniques, Grooves & Licks
Slap is, without doubt, one of the coolest sounds a bass can make! In the Library you'll find courses on Essential Slap Techniques, and also Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Slap Grooves & Licks with TAB's & Jam Tracks!
