How we work with you

What are our methods?

Assessing your level

First, we assess your current level of playing ability and create a tailored program designed to teach you at the right pace, with the right objectives in mind.

Developing your skills

Bass is all about locking in. You need to lock in with the drums, which means identifying which elements of a drum part to sync your playing with. You need to connect with the guitars or keys, which means knowing which notes will work with what they’re playing and which ones will class. You need to be aware of what the vocalist is doing so you can support their melodies and maybe add a little extra flourish in between lines. And you need to understand tone, so your overall sound fits properly with the rest of the band.

We’ll teach you how to train your ear so you can come up with effective bass lines in a variety of musical situations.
Learn to play, your way

What do I need to know?

Learn the songs you love

There are so many different styles that all fall under the umbrella of ‘bass playing.’ Do you want to play slap-and-pop style like Primus’s Les Claypool? Play with a pick for Jason Newsted’s massive sound on Metallica’s Black album? Fingerstyle like Paul McCartney and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones? Do you want to play clean or with overdrive/distortion? Do you want to double the guitar, or create more compositional riffs?At The Soundlab we’ll listen to what you want to learn and then we’ll give you the tools to achieve your goals. We’ll teach you how to train your ear so you can come up with effective bass lines in a variety of musical situations. We’ll teach you proper technique so your hands don’t get fatigued.
