    I picked up and put down instruments my whole life. This is my 3rd attempt at playing bass. I always started with Scales and learning to read music but I never understood why learning scales is important. This course has really set me on a path of understanding how/why music works. Not just some patterns to memorize on the bass to play up and down with no thought behind it. This course has not only helped me understand how to play the bass better but has helped me start to think musically for the first time. There are so many “Ah-Ha!” moments within this course. If you are wondering how some players just know what the right notes are while improvising a solo or bass line this is the BEST place to start. You will get familiar with the notes that outline a chord. What everyone else in the band is most likely playing. Having this knowledge will unlock so many doors into taking the first steps toward musical freedom and expression. ***Disclaimer*** This is not a course you just complete/finish. Some of these lessons may take some time to get down. I honestly feel that I will be using/revisiting some of these lessons for years to come and will still get great stuff out of them. This is not the fast track but in my opinion, it is the right track. 5/5 and then some.

    Are you looking to take bass playing to next level? If so, the Chord Tones Course is the way to go! Prior to this course I was mostly a memorizer of other musician’s bass lines. Now I am understanding how they create these bass lines and I am on track to create my own. I agree with others that have taken this course, there is a lifetime of practice material in this course and this course will stretch your brain to apply many different ways to play the notes of a chord all over the neck, and how to take these notes and create a bass line or solo that has rhythm and melodic quality. To say the least this course is well worth the money!!!!
