Can Playing Bass Guitar REALLY Be This Cool and Fun?
Watch the video below for a great sneak preview of this amazing resource:
Let Me Prove to You How Easy Mastering the Bass
Can Be When You Discover the Little-Known Shortcuts and Techniques That Most Teachers Donʼt Even Know . . .
Dear Bass Player (newbie or experienced, doesnʼt matter),
What if you could learn the magic of playing bass guitar way quicker than you ever expected?
And what if I also told you that if you already have a little experience playing guitar, then youʼll be even more blown away by what this incredibly cool instrument will do for you?
Forget about how learning bass will immediately make you a better musician and how it will open doors for you in picking up gigs and other musical opportunities --- those are givens.
Fact is, bass guitar is the power-pumping driving beat behind ALL styles of music. Whether youʼre into rock, funk, country, jazz --- heck, even rap --- there is just no more
primal sound you can create with a stringed instrument than with this bad boy.
Think back to the last killer show you went to . . . as you sat there and the band emerged among the towering stacks of speakers, everything starting with a heart- thumping bass line that pounds straight into your chest, getting you out of your seat . . .
Awesome, right? Nothing connects to the human heartbeat like bass. Itʼs the foundation of everything you love about playing music.
Look, thereʼs no doubt that playing bass guitar is COOL.
But I honestly donʼt know why so many people think that learning to play bass has to take so long. Or feels difficult. Or seems complicated. Playing bass is none of those things, I promise.
But, sure, I get it: That grooving, thumping beat we feel when we hear a killer bass line sure SOUNDS mysterious, like it sprung organically from the soul of some rhythmical genius . . . but, really, when you break it all down, itʼs no more complicated than completing a paint-by-numbers picture.
Thatʼs because when youʼre shown exactly what to do and how to do it, mastering bass guitar becomes EASY.
Let me give you an example so that you can see how so many people get this wrong . . .
Listen, thereʼs a LOT of myths out there when it comes to learning bass. Let me describe a few so that you can truly grasp how simple this is when you discard outdated techniques and embrace what really works instead.
Bass Guitar Myth No. 1: You should always keep the thumb of your plucking hand solidly anchored on the strings while playing.
The reasoning for this is that it provides a solid foundation to play off of. But this is a misguided piece of advice, and Iʼll tell you why . . .
First of all, there are MANY ways to attack the bass, not just one. To limit yourself to this one rule is just too limiting. Since there are so many styles of music, it helps to adopt a more "fluid" approach.
In my 4-DVD course I teach something called the "Floating Thumb Technique," which actually provides better muting than a solidly anchored thumb. It also makes more sense anatomically (physically, for your hand), meaning youʼll put less stress on your wrist.
This new technique is being used by more and more players today, especially with the advent of 5, 6, and 7-string bass instruments, which make a solidly anchored thumb impractical anyway.
Bass Guitar Myth No. 2: You should always use one finger per fret.
This just isnʼt true. Your fret hand approach depends on many factors, not the least of which is the style of music youʼre playing. I mean, think about how different funk differs from jazz. Or how metal differs from the blues. Do you really think that "one finger per fret" approach fits all? It doesnʼt. My course debunks this myth perfectly in my lesson on muting (more on that in a minute.)
Bass Guitar Myth No. 3: Only guitars should use distortion effects.
Again, this is a piece of outdated advice that will hold you back if you didnʼt know better. In my lesson on effects, youʼll learn that many sound engineers almost always add some amount of distortion to bass tracks.
If used tastefully, distortion can be KILLER for certain bass tones. My course tells you all about that.
Bass Guitar Myth No. 4: Bass guitar functions best in the background as a timing mechanism.
Yeah, sure, bass is the absolute bedrock of so much music, meaning that much of its essence is foundational. Bass is all about the groove, of course, and that will never change. But what you might not know is how much more out front bass has become in recent years.
Bass guitar can be the LEAD instrument in more ways than one. I show you many ways to exploit this reality, which opens up an exciting world of opportunity for your playing.
Okay, let me tell you one more secret. Itʼs this . . .
. . . Even if you think you have no rhythm or a musical bone in your entire body, ANYONE can master bass guitar if they apply my techniques for a few minutes per day.
Hey, my name is Finbar Taub. Iʼve been teaching these techniques to thousands of online students via YouTube for a while now, but only recently did I decide to package everything I know about beginner bass guitar into one, easy-to-learn system.
I put this together for one simple reason: There are many stumbling blocks to learning bass that can waste your time if you donʼt learn the right techniques correctly.
Let me put it this way . . .
Itʼs not just knowing how to play a clean, beautiful note . . . and being able to groove with that . . .
Itʼs also knowing how NOT to play. Itʼs also knowing how to SILENCE that note.
Look, anyone can grab an instrument and make noise with it. Even a total newbie can pluck a string and some noise will be created.
But to pluck a string and actually make it sound sweet? Well, thatʼs a whole ʻnother story. THAT takes some know-how. You could spend years spinning your wheels, fumbling around the fretboard, growing slowly frustrated with the noises youʼre creating.
And thatʼs why Iʼve dedicated the last year to putting together an all-in-one system for learning bass.
NOTE: This package is perfect for beginner AND intermediate players.
Regardless of whether youʼve even held a bass before, or whether you already have some experience, youʼll love these DVDs because Iʼve packed in so much instructional material that there is plenty of room to grow to the next level and beyond.
