Staying Out Of The Way with your bass guitar – another free bass lesson by Scott Whitley.

In this lesson I talk about the importance of staying out of the way (sonically speaking) of other members of your ensemble/band. In the context of this lesson, this is very improvisation-related – something I’ll look at with you over the coming weeks… Thanks for dropping by. Don’t forget to like/share/subscribe if you haven’t already. Regards, Scott.

Start improvising using just ONE NOTE!! Another free bass lesson by Scott Whitley

This lesson dives head-on into improvisation on the bass guitar! Even if you’ve never tried before, this lesson will hopefully get your creative juices flowing.

We’ve been exactly where you are. Dreaming of picking up a bass and flooring everyone, but daunted by the reality of actually learning it, you can also enjoy a show by looking upcoming concerts near me.

Learning can be slow and frustrating if you learn the wrong way. When you hit a wall with your learning, it’s easy to just give up or noodle along without progress.

That’s why we created Beginner to Badass, to make learning as easy as possible, with rapid results.

Beginner to Badass is not voodoo magic — it’s an intelligently designed, meticulously crafted, beginner’s bass system that even the most musically hopeless will succeed with. Here’s why:

No confusion, no head scratching. Be coached every step of the way, with each lesson seamlessly building on the last.

Our system won’t bore you to death, because you’ll learn loads of real songs with full backing tracks for that “jam-with-the-band” experience. (Don’t worry if you can’t read music or tabs; we’ve got you covered)

But with Beginner to Badass…
You get a fully structured course of lessons designed to work with each other. You won’t get a mishmash of random lessons that leave out vital beginner techniques or knowledge. You won’t be confused what to learn next.

But with Beginner to Badass…
You’ll save a truckload of cash. If you can find a great teacher it’s one of the best ways to learn. But good teachers aren’t cheap; a year’s worth of lessons can run up to $3,000. Our lessons are a fraction of the cost, equally as effective and more convenient — do them whenever you like, at your own pace.

But with Beginner to Badass…
You can see exactly how to do the technique correctly and hear the subtleties of how you should be sounding. No finger or fret mix-ups with us. You also get to use our play-along method, rather than having to figure out stuff by yourself.

But with Beginner to Badass…
You’ll learn the right techniques, in the right order, to get the right sound. You won’t drag along in some random order, or plateau when you should be pushing on. And you won’t need to struggle or waste time with incorrect tabs from sketchy bassists.
