DO YOU WANT TO MELT FACES WITH YOUR BASS?
MY FIRST BOOK IS COMING WINTER 2023
I packed this book with information, tools, practice tips, ideas, mental notes, stories, analogies - anything I thought was valuable, from my 35 years of experience, to someone who wants to learn how to play bass.
In addition to the basics, I go over:
GROWING IN CONFIDENCE

IF YOU'RE FRUSTRATED...
I understand how it feels. I know it because every musician goes through it.
Let's face it - music isn't easy. But we LOVE it. What helps is if you find something or someone to help guide us.
When I first tried lessons, I thought they would be my guide.
Unfortunately, my lessons were terrible, they were uninspiring and awkward. So I quit.
Since my albums and cassettes were the thing that got me excited about music - I would make THEM my guide. The MUSIC. I'd learn songs by those early new wave and punk rock bands that I loved and start bands and have fun with my friends.
So that's what I did. And I did it for years...
In 1988, I co-founded the band Sugar Ray. We sold 10 million albums during our decade at Atlantic Records, releasing 6 albums in that span. We toured the world, saw our dreams come true, and had a blast playing our music for people in places we'd never imagined. My favorite part of it all was playing music and connecting with people.
Today, I'm still connecting with people through music - I help people learn to play bass and learn how to express themselves through YouTube and my website.
And now I want to help YOU.
The key for me was figuring out the connection between my bass and the music I loved.
I like to teach this method because it's simple, focused, and it removes you from the confusion of watching YouTube videos and guessing which one is best for you.
