It was good enough I ordered the hardcopy version, too

I ordered the ebook to get a look at some concepts I'd forgotten. It was good enough I ordered the hardcopy version, too. The layout is a simple, logical sequence that is perfect for the theory newbie or for the know-it-alls!

It's a breath of fresh air...

It's a breath of fresh air 'cos James has focussed in on what we bass students really need to know, and has excluded a lot of extraneous, confusing stuff. Nice one James! It's worth every penny.

Music theory explained so well...

I've switched onto eBassGuitar because it's very practical and easy to follow, but with a solid underpinning of musical theory. I recently bought the Complete Guide to Music Theory which I love - music theory explained so well. Thanks James & crew"

MUSIC THEORY HAS ALL TOO OFTEN BEEN MADE INTO AN CONFUSING, OVER COMPLICATED, ACADEMIC STUDY WHICH HAS LITTLE RELEVANCE TO HELPING YOU BECOME A BETTER BASS GUITAR PLAYER. 

But studying it WILL be a game changer for your bass playing...

I've been paying my mortgage as a professional bass player here in the UK for the past 15 years and I've learned a ton of music theory in my time.

1000s of gigs later, I now have total clarity on what music theory matters for us bass players... and what's a waste of time.

For us bass players there are simple 'core concepts' we need to learn. The rest can go in the trash can.

Back in August 2018 I wrote The Complete Guide To Music Theory For Bass Players eBook which has now sold thousands upon, thousands of copies.

What students say about eBassGuitar products:

"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!!"
