Talkingbass – Bass Lessons, Courses and Resources 2017-11-09T09:23:09+00:00

 “Are you a beginner looking to get started? Do you want to learn how to slap? Need to work on your reading? Your technique? Maybe learn how to setup your bass?”

“Talkingbass courses have all your basses covered! Whatever your level or style, there’s a path prepared for you.”

“In every course and lesson I’ll guide you through each subject in simple, easy steps. No unnecessary complication or showboating. Just a pure road to learning.”

Mark J Smith (Creator of Talkingbass)

All of Mark’s courses are step by step and easy to follow. He has a great way of explaining the important information in each lesson and has an easy to follow, step by step approach to each course.

Mark teaches exactly the way I like to be taught and how I understand things best. Talkingbass makes learning fun and its up to us how fast and how much we want to learn. Mark covers it all!

I found 5 or 6 really solid web sites but always kept coming back to TalkingBass because it was so easy to navigate.  For me, it’s the most organized, most thorough and most comprehensive site out there.
