    I started this course last week and I have to say it’s just awesome. I just spent the week playing etude#1 for 15 minutes a day in all the keys and I can already see a big difference in my playing. I play in a metal band and one of my guitar players told me to slow it down a couple of times because I was playing a run in one of our songs a bit fast. :) I’m a finger player and my picking hand is definitely faster. After one week my playing has become a bit more fluid. I’m really looking forward to see where my playing goes after I’m done with the course. Thank you Mark for putting this course out, it’s really helping to step up my playing.

    I love, love, love this course – it’s worth the cost just for the etudes alone (never mind all the technique section), I practise them most days they are so melodic and I feel like I’m learning to play real music. Maybe it won’t suit you if you want to play rock and funk grooves and basslines but it suits me perfectly because the exercises build technique without being boring – Mark gives details on how to play each etude techically. Now I want to develop it into playing and composing full pieces of music and I think this course will help me to do that. As I’m only an intermediate level player, I’m really excited about where this course (coupled with Mark’s other courses) can take me!

    Hi Mark,
    I’m in the midst of this course, just starting on practicing the etudes and I must say, this is a fantastic course! I have improved so much in technique already from the lessons that I am amazed myself. The explanation, excercises and demonstations of all techniques, combined with the well thought design of the etudes is superb! As with the beginners course I really enjoy the lessons, and I really enjoy the fact that the etudes are not only technical but also musical and playfull. It is really fun to work them! And that makes all the difference in building routine. You managed to design a course that helps to build AND improve technique but also routine and insight in a very effective and enjoyable manner. Kudos for you as a tudor! In my opinion this course is Must Do for everyone, at every level, who wants to improve and progress as a bass player. But also for everyone who wants to enjoy achieving that improvement!

    My gateway into Talking Bass. Mark gets to the point, gets across the knowledge, and you have access to lots of lesson materials to practice with. It helped my melodic playing and improv playing immensely and I’m only just getting started.

    I really like this course it’s a great addition to my practice. It just makes things easier I love so much music it’s sometimes hard knowing which songs to learn some are too hard or some to easy, this I can pick up quickly and start practicing and it builds in the technique already taught it’s great.
