Discover the Awesomeness That is Bass Guitar — or Take Your Existing Bass Playing Skills to the Next Level … and Beyond!

Wait until you hear the thrilling and pulse-quickening
sounds you'll be creating when you see the lessons in
this special bass lesson series ...

Hello Good People David Taub here,

It’s just a fact ... even the greatest guitar shredder on the planet ain’t worth a lick (literally!) without a great rhythm section laying down a deep foundation behind him.

And that’s just one of about a hundred cool reasons to play ... BASS GUITAR.

Yep, bass guitar. Guitar heroes can sound weak and thin without the primal, pulse-quickening work of the bass guitarist.

But, look, you already knew all that. :-)

I mean, not only does every guitarist worth his salt recognize the awesomeness of bass guitar, but when my very own bro Finbar released his very own bass guitar package with our Next Level Guitar network a couple years ago, it flew off the shelves and we got a ton of rave reviews.

Introducing . . .

Bass Guitar Master Class PLUS
5-Disc Set



Here’s How Watching These Lessons Will Have You Playing the Low-String Beast Like a Pro and Vaulting Your Guitar Playing at the Same Time ...

(Do you already play bass guitar and want to go right to the meat of these lessons and see what they’re all about? Then click here.)

So ... Why Bass Guitar?

Let’s start with the obvious. Playing bass guitar is super cool, clearly one of the baddest instruments on the planet and an underrated component of some of the greatest bands in history.

(Just listen to what Flea did with his instrument … or John Entwistle … or Victor Wooten … and many others … 'nuff said!)

But apart from that, bass is more than just a guitar with two fewer strings. It has a different tone, scale length, feel and musical role, and in many cases it requires a different conceptual and technical approach.

And then it’s what it will do for your guitar playing …

5 Reasons Every Guitar Player Should Learn Bass

1. It’s easy to start.

Unlike guitar, which requires you to learn various chord positions that can twist your hands into pretzels, to play a note on the bass you simply press a string down on a free with your left hand and pluck it with your right. And since a guitarist provides melody while following the song’s chord progression, as a beginner bassist, all you need to do to start playing the bass is to play the root note of each chord in the song's chord progression in a repeating rhythmic pattern.

Of course, more advanced techniques like slapping, popping, double thumb, left hand tapping among others, do take quite a bit of practice, but we show you these techniques in our special program featured on this page.

2 - You learn to play more RHYTHMICALLY.

To be a good bass player, you have to develop a sense of groove, a sense of feeling what the song is about and where it wants to go. Your baselines will create that direction, all the while keeping perfect rhythm and time. This will help you immensely next time you strap on your guitar. Bottom line: Playing the bass rewards creativity. (Always a good thing!)

3 - It teaches you how to let the music BREATHE.

Look, just like nobody likes the guy who talks too much, no one wants to hear your instrument stepping on the toes of everyone around you. Never forget that music is a language and sometimes you gotta use restraint. Good bass playing requires that you exercise restraint and subtlety rather than showcase your technique and slick moves. This will aid your guitar playing as well because you’ll learn how to "play for the song."

4 - It proves — and helps you execute — the adage that “Tone Is In Your Hands"

You can go from a dull thud to a sharp, funky punch simply by choosing where along the string you pick it and how heavy you go after it. This sort of tonal range is an example of how playing bass can also transfer to your guitar playing.

The deep rumbling notes ... the way a single move of the finger can completely shift the feeling of a song ... the way that you can dance along underneath a song without overpowering everything ... it's pretty easy to see why so many fall in love with this instrument.

5 - You’ll become a smarter musician.

It’s been said that you should play guitar if you want to write songs, and play bass if you want to play in bands.

That may be an over-simplification, but I’ll tell you this much … bass forces you to think about your note selection. On guitar, you can play a chord, or a power chord to fill in somewhere, but on bass even minor decisions can have major impact. Playing a root on the E or an octave higher can completely change the feel of a song. And rather than going all “glory road” over a part you’ll learn how to better serve the best interests of the song itself.

Now that’s worthy reason to learn bass alone, if you ask me!

Bottom line: Your skills ARE transferable. And I mean that in both directions — not only will your guitar skills translate to bass, but opening yourself to the world of bass will do wonders for your guitar playing.

So Let’s Go “Under the Hood” and Show You How
Our "Ultimate Bass Guitar Bundle" Will
Help You Reach Your Bass Guitar Goals ...

(... And by the way, this applies to you whether you are brand new to the instrument, or even if you already have some chops on guitar or bass. It's perfect for both because we start with the basics but end up going pretty deep down the rabbit hole.)

"Bass Guitar Master Class Plus" is a 5-disc course consisting of:

  • Nearly 3 hours of video bass lessons on 3 region-free DVDs
  • 20 killer-sounding bass jam tracks on 2 CDs that will make you never want to put your instrument down!

You Know What Sets These Lessons Apart? It’s THIS ...

Repeat after me ...

"Application, Application, Application"

Look anyone can teach you a bunch of techniques. But application is EVERYTHING.

You need to APPLY what you are learning so that you can play in a musical context. Otherwise, what’s the point?

And that’s what truly sets this program apart … we teach you how to apply everything you are learning by playing along with the included bass jam tracks. The jam tracks essentially give you a full band playing behind you so you can develop your style and practice the techniques and devices you are learning within a musical context.

This is so huge! It takes you from simply sitting in your basement playing mere licks and instead catapults you into playing bass lines over any progression in any key.

Imagine being able to jam with your friends at will, participating in an open mic night, or even playing in a band — the sky’s the limit because you’ll be well prepared with a full tool box to play in any key and over just about any song after working with this course.

Here’s how we do that: In each lesson we pull apart one of the same jam tracks you get on the included bass jam tracks CDs and teach you how to examine the song and lock in with the drummer. And how to examine songs or chord progressions from a bass and song perspective. We show you various approaches and thought processes for each track. So you learn multiple lines and patterns for each track, as well as how to build your own lines and put your own spin on everything you hear and learn. Sweet!

Also remember this: We teach the lines and patterns at slow and regular speeds and really break them down into digestible pieces. We start off slow with just hovering around the root notes of each track. Then we add to it and build more complex bass lines and teach you how to embellish the lines with walking lines, melodic, lines, 16th notes lines, triplets, various techniques, and so much more.

Boom! Now you’re playing bass like a BOSS!

DVD 1:

1. Intro & Gear Lesson
We first go over the structure for the coming lessons and how to use and apply the lessons to get the most possible out of them. You’ll learn all about gear and accessories on the equipment we use throughout the series. We’re talking about the amp, bass guitar, pickups, strings, and accessories. Learn how to get different sounds from your bass by using different combinations of the pickups. Also learn how to use the "fump" to get that old school muted or upright acoustic bass tone. And you’ll also learn all about the "mute" to get even more different sounds from your bass. These accessories open up the bass guitar to new possibilities, which will let you discover new techniques. This gives your hands the freedom to "dig in" as you continue to develop your own sound and style on the instrument.

2. How to Easily Identify Key Signature

The key signature is basically the DNA of the scale and we make it easy to learn how to move around the fretboard in different keys and play over any track in any key. You’ll learn easy tricks to know the number of sharps and flats in any key. And rest easy, we don't pound you with music theory, but instead just give you quick tips and tricks with juuuuust enough theory to make your playing more applicable in any key and over any track.

We take you through the thought processes that will teach you how to develop and apply various patterns and lines over the progression.

4. How to Stay In the Pocket
Learn how to stay in the pocket and "feel the groove" of a song. Learn to understand exactly where the drums are and what they are doing. In other words, do you know how to feel the high-hat, snare and bass drums and do you know where they are in the song so that you can really lock in with the drummer? We teach you that. You’ll also learn the techniques of how to use a pick as well as good muting techniques to get the proper ring with your strings. Learn to give this shuffle a funky groove by letting the notes roll over longer — basically, learn how to give a totally different feel to the groove.
