What students say about eBassGuitar

Clear, Concise & Well Thought-Out - You Wont Regret It!

James Eager has not transformed my bass playing. That is up to me! However, what James HAS done is given me the tools so that I CAN transform my bass playing!

James Eager has allowed ME to transform my playing by providing detailed, clearly explained break-downs of the tools I need to fill my toolbox! His explanations of things such as walking bass line creation, or left hand technique (yeah, that ìcrabî thing) or groove are clear, concise, and well thought-out.

I have tried several other on-line or video instructional lessons. None are as well thought-through or clear as those created by James. While us ìYanksî may not always understand the colloquialisms of ìthe Brits, James has been kind enough to translate for us so we can understand the relevant lesson!

I would highly recommend James Eager for your needed lessons/instruction. You wont regret it!

"Knack Of Making Things Very Clear"

I have found Jamesís 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.

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