The course uses multiple approaches to understand the geometry of the instrument so you can find those that work best for your individual learning style.

Here’s what students are saying:

“This is an excellent course. I am new to bass and gained a lot of value from this material. The explanations were clear and well presented. Thanks Rajiv.”

“Great course, I’m halfway and so far it’s great, it’s easy to understand, and how good you can get really just depends on how much practice you put in, because the info is all there.”

“This guy’s amazing. He know his stuff and he’s so passionate about his craft. He’s a bass player’s bass player, if you know what I mean. His obvious command of the instrument lends itself towards his methodical and logical teaching approach. I love the fact that we can utilise this course on Udemy. Imagine what face to face lessons with this guy would cost? …he’s obviously a really nice guy and his style is infectious. I’ve come back to the bass after many years of playing guitar (yes that’s right, I crossed over to the dark side). I’ve missed the bass, and these lessons are just what the Bass doctor ordered to get me back to speed. Woo hoo!”
