Introduction to Bass Guitar - Started Mar. 7

Late beginning and early intermediate bass guitar players will learn to be self-sufficient musicians who can adapt to a variety of musical situations. We will explore 5 essential scales, play bass lines in a handful of styles, learn good practice and physical techniques, and expand rhythmic knowledge.

At the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • Play 5 essential scales that can be used in any style
  • Understand productive practice technique
  • Understand finding chord progressions and root notes
  • Learn intermediate physical techniques in the picking and fretting hands

I continue to be impressed with Emily as a teacher and an inspiration. She is a true professional and knows every aspect of her instruments and the music business as a whole.


Love how we have similar learning philosophies - and dreams of butterscotch teles.
