Description

Are You ready to finally unlock technique secrets on bass and be able to play songs that you like with ease?

Proper technique is at the core of everything we play on bass. Nothing is more frustrating than not being able to play a favorite song or music that’s locked inside our mind. When starting out, our fingers are not doing what we’d like them to do, and then we are practically stuck and can’t make progress and truly enjoy the instrument. I’ve made this course to SET YOU FREE, and UNLOCK your bass playing potential. Yes - this course is all about left and right hand bass technique! Once you complete this course, you'll unlock a whole new way of playing the bass. You’ll feel like you’ve found direction and obtained tools that you needed so desperately, and that you’ve just surpassed a major stumbling block that was holding you back.

Please watch the free preview videos to get a taste of what’s inside.

The course consists of two main elements: technique concepts and exercises. I’ll show you correct technique ideas that every bass player should incorporate to play more effortlessly and efficiently. Technique concepts and mechanics are same for absolute beginners and advanced players. In fact, if you’re complete beginner - then this course is perfect for you as you might not have developed any bad habits along the way. If your level is intermediate or advanced, you'll still benefit from this course. The second major component of this course is EXERCISES. Tons of simple exercises that you can do every day. You can do them while watching TV, on the train or even in the office. They are incredibly easy to do, yet super efficient at building your chops. This all means that you’ll spend less time in the woodshed, yet make more progress on the bass! The course is shown in crisp HD video and features high-quality bass audio and backing tracks.

This course includes:

- Tabs for each playing example

- Interactive backing track videos for practice in different tempos

- Progressive tempo backing track for building endurance and speed

- English subtitles

- Unlimited forum help and instructor feedback

- Left and right hand pro technique tips and tricks

- Ultra-efficient exercises for building your bass chops

I want you to know that it is important to me to hear back from you, while you're going through the course. I'd like to encourage you to send me messages anytime, and I’ll be checking them out and responding quickly (usually the same day!). Also, I’d like to ask you to record audio files or videos (you can post videos on Youtube and share the link) and send them to me for feedback.

I’m here to help YOU, so please don’t be shy :)

You don’t need any prerequisites to enjoy this course. Just bring your bass, and you’re ready to start working on your technique. You’ll be able to improve your comfort, speed, and endurance while spending less time. This course is also like a virtual bass fitness class - just fire up a lesson and start practicing.

Please send me your feedback about the course. What did you like? What did you not like? How could I improve it? Your comments mean a lot to me, and I need them to shape the course content for YOU better.

Please Enroll Today!

Cheers,

Bogdan aka Bass Rebel

Bass instructor at Udemy

Bogdan has been teaching bass guitar online for more than 8+ years now and has worked with 1000+ of online students over the years. His preferred teaching style are personalised video courses on focused topics that effortlessly guide students from point A to B giving them instant gratification at the end of each lesson.

Bogdan is also a published artist, songwriter and producer with more 300+ live shows with various bands behind him. This experience from live gigs is what has defined him as a musician. His favourite bass guitar is a Fender American Jazz Bass deluxe and his favourite bass players are Paul McCartney, Victor Wooten and Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Bogdan has almost a million views on Youtube and more than 1000 subscribers.

He has a strong passion for teaching others in a down-to-earth kind of way as he enjoys sharing tips and tricks as well as shortcuts and other revelations he has come to over the years of studying the instrument. His moto is “everyone needs to have fun while practicing” and his lessons always include musical examples and backing tracks students can have fun with.

As he knows how frustrating it can be to learn the instrument without proper guidance his super power is : COMMUNICATION WITH STUDENTS. All students are more than welcome to take part in discussions and ask any questions they might have. Bogdan will go way and beyond in answering and providing assistance to make the bass journey as smooth and fun as possible.

His special skills involve teaching beginners in an understandable way as well as helping intermediate players cross to the next level.

Last but not least - Bogdan strongly believes that ANYONE can learn how to PLAY THE BASS. If you think you are not “talented”, that you don’t posses “the groove” or that you don’t have a “musical ear” - just give him a chance to prove YOU wrong!
