It All Starts With The Hands!

Great Technique For A Great Tone

Master The Mechanics Of Your Playing

14 Lesson Mini Course Covering All Aspects Of Bass Technique

“Developing a strong technical foundation will make for a much smoother ride on your road to musical success”

“Technique is not just a means to ‘playing fast’. Technique deals with our overall physical approach to playing the instrument”

“When we start out on bass guitar it can be tough to know if we’re playing with good technique, especially if we have no teacher. You might find your hands seem too small or certain fingers are too weak or your playing just seems sloppy or unclean”

“Technique Essentials will provide you with a strong fundamental approach to playing the bass and allow you the freedom to follow any practice path you desire”

Mark J Smith (Creator of Talkingbass)

Don’t Take My Word For It….

What I was after was a good foundation on which to build technique.  Your material would be a fantastic deal at double the cost and a down right under priced steal at the posted price.

Mark Mahoney – USA

My goal was to tighten up my technique. My playing has been turbo charged after taking the course. The courses are especially valuable to me because of the way they are structured — I can pin-point the technique that I’m trying to improve from within the lesson and really get it sorted out
