"I got the course - 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, all I’ve got to do now is practice it!! The course was great for me as my bread and butter is classic rock and roll all in major scale so you got me out of my comfort zone a bit!!

I got the course - 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!!

Thanks for your hard work in creating the course,".

Paul Rouse (Spain)

"Without any fear of making a fool of myself"

"This 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 jam at the Bucket of Blood without any fear of making a fool of myself".

"Explanations were clear and easy to follow"

I approached this series as someone who has played 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 Masters 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 skills and be competent at playing – whether it be for developing new and interesting bass lines, or just jamming with friends.

So Why Are Riffs So Important?

​Riffs are one of the most fundamental building blocks of bass playing.

A bass player's ability to great play riffs consistently is just as important as a master baker's ability to bake the most basic loaf of bread perfectly, every day.

A riff is a short, repetitive phrase and many of the greatest songs in the world feature this distinctive musical pattern. Just think Under Pressure by Queen, Living On A Prayer By Bon Jovi or Sunshine Of Your Love by Cream.

As bass players, we are expected to be able to perform these riffs consistently for an extended period of time. Listen to Billie Jean by Michael Jackson and you'll hear one of the greatest examples of this in action.

Playing a bass riff once is simple. Many teachers on YouTube can show you that.How to make a bass riff groove for a whole song is an art in itself and something you'll need to dig a little bit deeper to master.

Every bass player needs to be able to play riffs properly and the greatest thing is... these patterns can be applied to any style of music.

Deep dive into this system and you'll start to discover what it's like to feel 'like a real bass player' and of course have amazing fun too!

What students said about eBassGuitar:

"Logical & Well Prepared"

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

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!!"
