I am interested in what video course topic you would most like to take to improve your playing.
Also, do you think online learning is a valid way to improve your bass playing?
Obviously face to face lessons with a teacher is the best way to learn, but I am aware that some people do not have access to this because of location, or finances.
Let me know what you think.
Get your walking bass lines together with this video lesson.
I work through easy steps, to explain the theory behind how to create your own lines.
All the examples are written down, and you can download the PDF from the video description on YouTube.
Joe Hubbard here. I wanted to start a new thread where people can ask me anything that's bass related. I've been teaching for 38 years and have come up with many concepts which have been tested in many high-level professional scenarios- including studio work, tours and gigs while working with major artists and producers on both sides of the Atlantic. All my concepts have been created with one goal- to be able to function at high levels musically regardless of style.
I'll do my best to answer as many questions that I can...so fire away!
All the Bass!

I'm offering electric bass lessons in south west London, I teach from a studio in Earlsfield (SW18, about a 7-minute walk from Earlsfield station)
For those who like to see qualifications, I have a BA from the Academy of Contemporary Music, Guildford and a PGCE from the Institute of Education, London.
For those who want 'real world' experience, I've toured/performed across the UK and Europe with a number of artists including Hayley Westenra, Alexandra Burke and Suggs, as well as various washed-up boyband members and reality TV types.
A more detailed bio is available here
Since graduating a decade ago, I've taught hundreds of students both privately and in schools and have successfully prepared students for Rock School, RGT and Trinity exams as well as entrance auditions for music colleges including BIMM and ACM.
Lessons focus on essential musical skills for surviving as a bass player, including:
• Ear training
• Fretboard knowledge
• Developing a strong internal sense of time
• Sight reading
There are plenty of free lessons on my website/youtube channel, I’ve just finished a series of articles on how to practise effectively:
