A complete bass guitar course for absolute beginners with Phil Williams
This easy-to-follow tutorial is ideal if you’ve just bought your first bass guitar, or if there’s been a guitar sitting around somewhere just waiting to be played… This DVD will take you from novice level through to intermediate level. Yet it requires no prior knowledge at all: it truly is for someone starting “from scratch”.
Slowly but surely, the tutor guides you through all the things that a beginner needs to know and, very importantly, points out what can go wrong. Each of the carefully designed chapters introduce commonly used scales and technique gradually and strategically, along with some practical theory – nothing too demanding, just enough to help you understand what you’re doing and why.
You’ll soon be playing scales, picking out melodies and, hopefully, writing some songs of your own! Making music has never been so easy!
Phil Williams is a highly sought after freelance bass player, writer and teacher. He has played and toured with many well known bands and artists as diverse as Gary Barlow, Roger Daltrey and Keith Emerson to name just a few. His playing can be heard on numerous film and TV soundtracks.
