The Essential Technique Course has helped me get back on the rails and start playing my bass to some degree of acceptance for myself.

 

"I had been off the Bass since I was a very young man but was longing to fiddle with it for a long time. I was extremely rusty when I first picked it up again,

The Essential Technique Course has helped me get back on the rails and start playing my bass to some degree of acceptance for myself.

I have learned much from EBassGuitar. From music theory to techniques to practicing for finger speed and even about chords and progression."

My hands used to be all over the place, I can now play much more precise and much faster

 

"My bass playing was evolving, but rather slowly

My hands used to be all over the place, I can now play much more precise and much faster. And using your course, it can even be fun!

I feel the Essential Technique Course very good basic course. I loved playing the bass, but thanks to you, I feel I have really improved a lot. Keep playing and teaching!!"

I needed finger strength and above all dexterity so the 'spider' was a perfect lesson for me and helped me in both those weak areas.

 

"I have been self-teaching myself for about 3 years now and felt as though I had reached a plateau and needed a boost to help keep me up with a band I had joined. The challenges I faced were adding some spice and interest to my playing which I felt was sounding the same with each song.

I needed finger strength and above all dexterity, so the 'spider' was a perfect lesson for me and helped me in both those weak areas.

I have been very excited and thrilled with my playing when I used the techniques I have learnt so far from eBassGuitar. I was a bit nervous trying them in front of my band for the first time but when the techniques worked and sounded great I knew my playing was moving forward very nicely. I have much more to learn but I know I'm in the right place.

I am so pleased to be a part of ebassguitar as I feel James teaches in a way that is easy to understand and my playing has already vastly improved. Thank you!"

I've increased my speed. I'm more confident and relaxed in my fingering.

 

"My technique was pretty much non-existent. I am a beginning bass player, though I've played drums for close to 50 years. I needed to learn those things that would allow me to have fun playing without limiting me down the road because I'd developed bad habits.

I'm much more aware of my finger positioning and the concept of economy of movement in building speed and setting the groove. I've also gotten a lot out of breaking down the bass lines into digestible chunks and practicing with the metronome.

I've increased my speed. I'm more confident and relaxed in my fingering, and I have a plan for breaking down lines under study.

I like your style of teaching and the cerebral way you go about it."

I completed the Essential Technique Course and found it's helped me a lot. I am increasing in skill and confidence.

 

"I felt like a beginner which I was so anything I could learn would be good. I had previously tried searching for information on the internet and picked up a few tips but couldn't piece it all together.

I completed the Essential Technique Course and found it's helped me a lot. I am increasing in skill and confidence and recognise the importance of practice and the need to learn even more.

I get along well with James' teaching style and I am thoroughly enjoying the various courses!"

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.
