Traditional Bass for Beginners with Andy Tyler Brown

This class will meet online - an invitation to a recurring Zoom meeting will be included in the orientation email sent upon checkout.

The class goal is to make individuals the BEST bass players they can be.... going over basic techniques from physically holding the bass through how to gain tone and time. We will define what the job of the bass player is for the most part and then cover some fun stuff on melodies, solos, and more.

Whether you are just getting started on bass or have been playing for a while, you will learn:

1.) Basic understanding of bass in a traditional music setting

2.) How to play in the keys of G, C, D, A, E, Bb, and B

3.) Be able to play in both ¾ and 4/4 time signatures

4.) A small repertoire of tunes that can be used in jams or bands

5.) An understanding of basic charts

6.) A love for bass and the option of moving on to more advanced study in the instrument

What people will need for the class:

  1. All the technology needed to properly do Zoom
  2. An electric bass or upright bass 
  3. A small electric bass amp and instrument chord (if you're rocking that electric)
  4. A notebook and pen
  5. Liquid bandage (I promise, you’ll need it if you’re playing bass)
