Bass Guitar Lessons

Bass Guitar Information

Thump, Groove, Slap and Pop, Finger-style, Picking, Note Reading, Tablature, Music Theory……

Bass lessons can tend to be a different approach than guitar lessons. Bass players have a much different role in a band then a guitar player and they are not as much of a stand alone instrument. The bass player is the one who drives the harmonic structure and the groove while the lead guitarist or vocalist is really in the spot light.

“I was completely new to stringed instruments when I began bass lessons with Joey. He had me up and able to play on worship team within the first few months. His skills as a teacher helped me achieve my goals with the electric bass all while feeling comfortable as an “older” student.” -Francee
