Welcome to Play Bass 3: Essential Skills for late beginner to intermediate students of bass guitar.
This Bass Learning Path core course is presented by 6 top TrueFire educators: Andy Irvine, Andrew Ford, Stu Hamm, Brad Carlton, Jasper Mortier and Ariane Cap.
The Essential Skills curriculum is comprised of select bass guitar lessons from the educators’ existing TrueFire course libraries.
Once you’ve gotten some of the basics under your fingers, it’s important to start developing a repertoire of techniques, grooves and lines that you can use anywhere. This course will equip you with the skills you need to become a solid bass player!
Play Bass 3 is arranged in two sections. In the first section you will start off by expanding your repertoire of grooves. Having a wide variety of grooves to work on will build your skills and give you a more versatile reservoir of feels to draw from. Then in the second section, you’ll learn new scales, and progressions, and dig into essential concepts and techniques that you will need to take your playing to the next level.
The educators demonstrate all of the key examples over jam tracks (where and when applicable) to simulate a real-world application, in a musical context. All of the key examples are also tabbed and notated for your practice, reference and study purposes.
You’ll also get Guitar Pro files so that you can play, loop or slow down the tab and notation as you work through the lessons. Plus, you’ll have all of the available jam tracks to work with on your own.
Take as much time as you need to work through each video lesson before moving on to the next lesson.
