About James Eager

Hey, my name is James Eager...

I'm a bass player, double bassist and educator from London.

I don't know about you... but after 15 years as pro bassist the number one thing I've discovered is I love creating, understanding and jamming bass lines.

Now I'm not talking the crazy stuff full of pyrotechnics and bass wizardry that only the top 2% of the world's bassists could even begin to attempt.

... I'm talking about the bass lines which make your favourite songs sound great.

Those world famous songs with Paul McCartney, James Jamerson & Marcus Miller are what make my world go round.

There's something beautiful and inspiring about playing and creating bass lines that just feel good.

That's reason I fell in love the bass guitar.

Equally I love showing my students how to learn, understand and play their favourite bass lines and songs.

Constructing bass lines isn't hard but it can be if you don't have the right information.

It soon became evident back in 2016 when I published my first lesson on YouTube, that I the guy who could actually show my students "how to play a bass line".

Principally because I have some unique concepts and frameworks that help 'the penny drop'.

(To the best of my knowledge this stuff is available nowhere else on the internet)

I knew this was what made me different.

It was this concept which fuelled starting The Bass Lab PLUS Membership and the need to give students a focused, fluff free environment to improve in.

1000s of students later I'm proud to help beginner to intermediate develop into the musicians of their dreams and create, understand and jam the bass lines which made them want to pick up the bass in the first place.

I chose a lower priced website to my disappointment...

You were the first website I wanted to go with but I chose a lower priced website to my disappointment. Then I remembered eBassGuitar and remembered what fantastic lessons you offered. I found BLP to be exactly what I was looking for.

It's well organised comprehensive, not hit or miss. & not shotty like the others. Your customer service & facebook group is great too. It shows me you really care about me learning bass guitar. Please don't ever change that. You have a student for life.

"I don't feel overwhelmed..."

I had been following a few other online instructors and it became infirmation overload! Your videos have broken down the lessons into bite size chunks. This makes the learning curve a lot easier to handle... Your videos are just the right length of time and I don't feel overwhelmed by the pace you have set for your lessons. I have developed a lot more confidence in my playing ability...
