"I play Thrash Metal... is the Bass Lab Plus Membership relevant to me?"

Without question, yes, yes, yes!

There are 'music fundamentals' the cross all genres. Soul, funk, Grime, Drum 'N' Bass... they all come from the same routes.  Once you understand how the basics like grooves and chords sequences are built, everything will slot into place... Regardless of what style of music you play, you'll discover it's all structured on the same foundations.

Being in a room full of bassists with different tastes is one the most healthy places you can be if you want to develop as a musician... and that's exactly what we encourage at eBassGuitar!

Best money I’ve spent!!

I’ve just worked my way through the Riff Masters course and I found it to be first class stuff - you got me out of my comfort zone!!

I got the course on your super special offer!!!! Best money I’ve spent!! I don’t know how long that offer will last but you may want to revert the price to the previous one in the short term as I am intending to put some glowing comments about the course in the Bass Lab and you may want to capitalise on any response to that!

Knack Of Making Things Very Clear

I have found James’s on-line bass lessons to be extremely useful. James seems to have the knack of making things very clear by combining talk with close-up images of him playing the instrument, sometimes illustrated by incorporating audio clips of various artists’ work.

James’s lessons have a good balance of factual content and a certain light-heartedness that makes them enjoyable. Also, he is a very friendly guy, who is very willing to interact with students on a one-to-one basis, over email.

Patrick Foreman (USA)

You don't present too much, just enough...

Just wanted to send you a note of appreciation. I've been playing bass for many, MANY years although I still don't consider myself an advanced player.


I like your lessons very much. You don't present too much at one time, just enough, and what you do present is almost always valuable and useful. Thanks very much.

What students say about eBassGuitar Courses:

"Logical & Well Prepared"


"Just a short note of praise for the rookie bass blues intensive course from ebassguitar.com

This course really helped me achieve a greater awareness for how to play bass on many different styles and types of blues progressions.

James lays it all out in a logical, well-prepared format that can help even an experienced player to play blues progressions more efficiently and with more variety.

Don't think twice, get on board!"

Paul Budd (USA).

"These courses leave you wanting MORE...and MORE...."


"The RBBI course, is a very well thought out course. It doesn't blister out of the gates and leave the beginners in the dust. In fact, I found that even though I had some experience in the 12 bar blues, I learned things right away that I had no idea about. The fingering and explanations are always easy to grasp, the "less is more" approach totally eases your mind when you think you're gonna be in over your head.

I HIGHLY recommend these courses - for beginners to intermediates for sure.....these courses leave you wanting MORE...and MORE....

Keep Jammin James! - Thanks, pal!!"

"Without any fear of making a fool of myself"


"The RBBI course has given me the knowledge and confidence that is necessary to lick out using the pentatonic scale over a dominant seventh chord. Now, I can play at the Tuesday night blues jam at the Bucket of Blood without any fear of making a fool of myself".

Rusty Lee (USA)

"Explanations were clear and easy to follow"


I approached this series as someone who has played blues both as a drummer for 40+ years and as a relatively new bassist. I was familiar with the basic patterns but clearly lacking in technique and knowledge of how to use patterns and make a good flow – like those true Blues Master do.

As with all of James’ materials, the lessons were well laid-out and thoughtful. Explanations were clear and easy to follow, even for someone as dense as me! The tab sheets and backing tracks made it easy to continue work on the lessons and hone my skills.

I believe this series will give anyone a clearer insight as to how to develop their blues-playing skills and be competent at playing – whether it be for developing new and interesting bass lines, or just jamming with friends.

Thanks James!

"Thanks to the RBBI now I feel comfortable and confident"


“This course has taken my playing to another level. Thanks to the RBBI now I feel comfortable and confident when playing or improvising on any Blues based melody. James has an amazing, fun and effective way of teaching; and both videos and exercises really help you to reach your goal. Thanks James!!!”
