Are you a decent bass guitarist ?
Have you had a double bass propped up in the corner for years ?
Have you tried it a few times, hurt your hand....then put it back ?
Yes thought so, that was me about 30 years ago.
I'm a graduate of Leeds College of Music, back in the eighties, and have spent the last 30 odd years working as a professional bass player. It took me a while to come to terms with playing the double bass from the perspective of a bass guitarist....but I did.
My CV is fairly extensive, including some of the worlds most divers venues and festivals (literally from the Hollywood Bowl, down to the local Pub). I am usually a busy player, working for many theatres, studios gigs from Dame Shirley Bassey to Bjork, and most things in-between. During lockdown, I've still managed a few on-line sessions for Trinity/Guildhall tutor books and a couple of big band sessions.
I am exploring on-line teaching, we have a purpose built studio, my wife uses it teach Saxophone, so I'm learning her "tricks of the trade" re working remotely, and actually, whilst not as good as face-to-face, it certainly works.
As a minimum you'll need a decent smart-phone/tablet/laptop and decent headphones....and a decent internet connection. The experience is better with a decent USB mic or some way of D.I. ing into your computer or device, and a wired connection but I'm more than happy to advise on this.
I'll upload some sound files later, so you can hear me play, see if you like what you hear. Due to the amount of variables involved, I'm more than happy to an initial meeting/lesson/tech session for free, just to see if both get on, and the system works.
After that I would charge my usual teaching rate £30/h or £15/30 mins.....I'm completely flexible, and no requirement for regular or weekly lessons etc....just PAYG !
Happy to chat at any time. Lessons in English, any time zone catered for !

For Sale - Godin A4 Ultra Fretted ***SOLD***
I ordered this bass in from Canada via PMT and I purchased it there in February 2017. It received a Pro Setup at Guitar Technical Services mid-March 2017 (invoice for work in the gigbag). It has had regular six monthly check ups at GTS ever since (apart from a brief sojourn when I sold it to a fellow Bass Chatter who in turn put it up for sale at Bass Direct, from where I purchased it back! It was checked over at GTS on the way back from Bass Direct and has been back on its six monthly checks ever since).
It’s just the best acoustic bass you can get in my humble opinion. It has a few small dings on the back (see pics) but otherwise at this price it’s a steal. I despise instruments sitting unplayed and as I mostly play short scales now this is nog getting played, I’d much rather someone was actually using it! Comes with fitted Godin gigbag and I’ll throw in my heavy duty leather strap too. Any questions just ask, no trades thanks. Here is the bumf from Godin...
The A4 Ultra SA semi-acoustic bass features more sonic possibilities than ever before with the addition of a Low Profile Lace Sensor electric pickup and side-mounted volume and tone controls.
Other features include: Custom Godin electronics with individual saddle transducers in the bridge, Custom preamp voiced specifically for the A4 Ultra SA, as well as a ¼” output and 13-pin capabilities for computer and synth access. Incredible acoustic bass sounds are available through the ¼” output jack and controlling your tone is made easy with the Custom Godin Preamp. The two-chambered body design found in all of the A-Series instruments is also found in the A4 Ultra. This design resists feedback as well as the negative effects that loud stage levels can have on top vibration.
