In just 15 lessons, Jeremiah will teach you how to get in tune, position yourself, and start playing songs! Once you get down the right picking, fingerstyle, and fretting techniques, you'll develop your ability to quickly find any note on the fretboard. Following those sweet skills, Jeremiah will move on to showing you how to read TAB and then get into some essential theory.
After this course, you'll be ready to jam out to your favorite tracks!
The theory you learn is simple and explained step-by-step. The chord and scale formulas that you take from this course will literally be applied every time you sit down to play your bass. So study up and take those practice tests! If you have any questions, Jeremiah or someone else from the Lutz crew will step right into help. Just post your question in the Q&A section of the course.
In the final lessons of this beginner essentials master class, Jeremiah will let you out on your own with some tips, techniques, and ideas for where to go next. And if you happen to want to continue your bass education (we sure hope so!) check out Lutz Academy's other master classes where you can delve deeper into theory, song writing, and the two best music genres: rock and metal!
