StudyBass.com is an interactive, online resource for learning how to play the bass. This site is intended for bassists who want to use the bass in a creative, original way. Anyone can learn to play other peoples' basslines and bass solos. The goal of my bass lessons is to educate you on how to create your own basslines and solos, not just to parrot those of others.
In the lessons, there is a strong focus on basics. That's the way it should be. You will always struggle without a strong foundation. You will notice my lessons don't distract you with things you'll rarely use, don't need to know or that will delay your progress. There's a lot to study and the worst thing you can do is spend years learning the wrong things. Unfortunately, that happens to a lot of people.
Throughout the bass lessons you will see I combine instruction with interactive bass exercises for practice, music quizzes to test your knowledge and example songs and basslines for practice and analysis. In my private lessons I've found this to be the most effective approach to learning. You'll learn a lot and, hopefully, have fun doing it!
Beyond the bass lessons, you will find a number of tools for reference and study. There is an online fretboard diagramming application for mapping out common scales and chord patterns. There is a quiz for learning the notes of the bass clef. There is printable music paper. And, there is an online metronome.
