Welcome to my Bass tutorial website.  If you are new here, then please check out the 'Lesson tree'.  This is an order of practice, starting at beginners level, and slowly raising.

Also take time to check out all the other free Bass lessons and content that is on this site!  - Kris




"I've sampled many online bass lessons over the past year or so. Paid a lot of money but didn't learn much. But your lessons are a breath of fresh air. Most sites and teachers are dull, over complicated and in some cases-self-important. You have managed to simplify the jargon, to a point where literally anyone can understand and have fun when learning this instrument. But also, behind that laid back, almost jokey exterior is one hell of creative and innovative bass player. In a way it's a shame that you don't flaunt and show yourself off like many famous musicians, because if you did, you'd be one of the best. You're an inspiration. Thankyou for everything, and god bless you" – Tom, USA.
