I’m not someone who wants to be a bass guitar teacher. In fact, when it comes to most instruments that I know, I know there are plenty of more passionate teachers out there than me.
Instead of trying to half-bake some bass lessons for you, I’ve gone through all my best resources and curated a lesson plan from start to finish. Some are video lessons, and some are written - all of them interactive. You’ll find both beginner, intermediate, and advanced lessons.
If you were to follow these lessons from #1 all the way to the end, you could easily find yourself a proficient bass player.
I expect you’ll eventually outgrow this page and start looking for your own resources. Don’t avoid it - you won’t hurt my feelings! Branching out and becoming your own teacher is an important part of your development.
If you get to a point where you feel you can't grow anymore - go and hire a teacher. You'll have already done a lot of the heavy lifting by teaching yourself, and your teacher will really be able to bring you to the next level.
To start, what's your skill level?
If you have any suggestions for other lessons to include in this list, just let me know.
My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
