The Beginning Jazz Survival Guide for Bassists


Course available to Academy members only

Course Overview:

Many high level and notable bass players consistently discuss how critical studying jazz was for their progression as a bass player and musician. This is because studying jazz is the perfect platform and tool to help you learn the fingerboard inside out, and finally start to understand harmony in a much deeper and usable way.

If you have no experience in jazz, but really want to start to unlock this style of music... this is course for you!

In this course Scott takes you right from the start and get's you 'gig ready' for a real life jazz gig.

Beginning walking bass lines, the 2 feel, Latin rhythms, essential walking bass vocabulary, soloing techniques, ghost notes and much more... it's all in there.

Ready? Let's jump in!
