You will learn and achieve a level of skill and knowledge in playing the bass that you have never thought possible for yourself.

It is a simple fact that the ability to acquire a high level of knowledge and proficiency with the bass is very difficult and expensive. It is therefore very inaccessible to, and a lifetime of struggle for so many people. You need a comprehensive, systematic bass method that you can actually understand and apply in the real world. As one of our customers commented: "At this point I have all of this information swimming around in my head but it hasn’t clicked yet. Somehow I need to ‘tie it all together’."

"I would like to tell you how much I appreciate the depth of the knowledge and skills provided by your system: scales, arpeggios, chords, fretboard applications are thought in such a way that you become more confident in using your skills as a bass player."                      Yves M - France

It is one thing to learn songs and play enough to impress others, and quite another to have any real clue about "what it is", that you are actually doing. Our bass software gives the you the means to achieve your desired level of bass playing ability by choice. Often, it is not choice, but the complex and overwhelming world of learning bass that blocks many serious bass players from being able to achieve their bass playing goals, or to even come close to doing so.

Many bass players, even ones whom you may assume are good players, are in reality, very unsatisfied with their knowledge and proficiency with the bass and musicality as a whole.

It may be easy to pick up the bass and "get jamming" at some level fairly quickly, but quite another to really comprehend the instrument and its musical world.

The great amount of time and money a person spends learning and practicing the bass compared to the amount of any real progress he or she actually makes, is for most people highly unbalanced. This bass software will change that equation.

The aspiring intermediate to advanced bass player will immediately recognize the cost and time value of acquiring a serious, hands-on, world class bass teaching course and unprecedented bass practice trainer.

It is difficult for a beginner to realize this wthout the experience of playing for many years without accomplishing much, which is why many bass players give up, and never get past the beginning level, and fewer yet ever become even true intermediate players, or even comprehend aspiring to an advanced ability.

  • Perform all of your bass practice sessions in timed segments. This allows you to do two things: manage your time, apply disciplined practice, and measure your progress. One way to use you timer, is for actual exercise practice on your fretboard. World class athletes, musicians, and other professionals, all use measurements of time to measure their progress over time. This allows you do to that easily and effortlessly. Another way to use your timer is to manage your study and practice time in regards to various subjects, that is instead of neglecting chord practice for scale practice or music theory progressions study for some other subject, you can spend specific time segments on various subjects. Discipline is difficult even for those who are good at it. The timer helps you really focus on what you are doing for given period of time and this will produce dramatic results.

  • Track all practice sessions with details. Tracking what you have studied or accomplished in a given practice session, will help you to look back over any given period of time such as a month, etc. and see what you have and "therefore have not" studied or practiced. Tracking will also be key to measuring your progress as for any given exercise, you can make your memo comments on how fast you practiced (the tempo), your clarity with that, and how much of the exercise or exercises you were able to complete in a specific time period.

  • Schedule all practice sessions. Managing your time and disciplining yourself is the key to your success with the bass. This is based on your time spent with practice and study. Scheduling your practice and study sessions will help you really keep on track.

  • In our busy and hectic times, we need all the help we can get to manage our time and get the most done in the least amount of time possible. Plus we want to progress significantly with our bass, and even if we have all the time and money in the world, we still need the right combination of discipline, teaching methods and learning tools/technology to get there as fast as is possible for each of us.

We take the mystery out of the whole subject of the bass music theory and application, which is key to having freedom with your instrument and musical expression.

  • Get the most out of the songs or artists that you are interested in. Learning a song note for note is fun and has benefits, but it does not do much for you if you do not understand what the artist is doing.

  • Our dual fretboards simultaneously show you rhythm and lead bass and guitar parts so there is nothing left for you to question.

  • Due to the nature of the bass, musical examples will be used in three ways by the bass player. One: bass parts will accompany guitar parts. Two: bass lead examples will be shown with or without guitar lead examples. Three: the bass player will study the detailed guitar lead parts with detailed explanations for soloing and improvising study as well. All information and examples apply equally to the Bass player and this is the first time the Bass player is not being left in the dust by having the same knowledge and learning system as the guitar player.
