Dear Bass Player,
If you've been
struggling with how to learn technique, creativity,
and groove, you'll want to read this page very carefully...
... because I'm
about to show you how you can quickly and easily
learn to play the right notes with the right
technique, play fast AND in time, AND groove - all at the same time - no matter HOW much experience
you have playing bass guitar (and even if you've never
picked up a bass guitar in your life!)
my name isGeorge
Urbaszek, and I've been playing the bass professionally
for over 32 years.
I have the experience of over3000 performances and 120 recording sessions...
... and have played with Rolf Harris (remember "Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport"?)... Judith Durham from The Seekers... Thelma Housten (Motown Recording Artist with the smash hit "Don't Leave Me This Way")... Beccy Cole, multi award-winning Australian Country Rock artist...
... and the list goes on.
I've ALSO been a bass teacher for over 34 years, and have lectured in Bass and Ensemble Performance at the Australian National University and Southern Cross University in the Jazz and Contemporary Music programs.
famous students include Kim Khahn (with English
multi-million record selling singer, Robbie Williams)...
Rory Quirk (with The John
Butler Trio, Australia's top international "independent"
band)... Brendan Clarke (winner
of the Australian National Jazz Award for Bass)... Greg
Royal (in the TV band of Australian Idol)......

After teaching in Outback Australia and finding that many keen students simply did not have access to quality and affordable bass lessons, I decided to create a solution to their problem.
With the aid and
approval of Jazz guru, Charlie Banacos, from whom I
took bass lessons by correspondence for seven years,
I developed audio correspondence lessons specifically
for bass players wanting to learn to play bass without
leaving their home. That was in 1996.
Bass players from
all over the world signed up for tailor-made bass lessons
with me. This program is very successful. However, it
is time consuming and not ideal for everyone - especially
because of the expensive lesson costs, resources and
necessary commitment from students.
Because I am always
in the process of creating the
best-possible bass lesson structure for ALL of my students
I needed to find an alternative. So I researched and
consulted with numerous current and former bass students
in search of a solution, especially in relation to the
cost and availability factor.
I had been writing
the bass lesson column for Australian Musician magazine
and was Australia correspondent for the online bass
magazine Global Bass, so I already had my own resource
of proven and successful bass lessons, both online and
I decided to compile
and test a short course of electric bass guitar lessons
called Teacher's Choice for online use and went about
formatting and recording the lessons and uploading them
to a newly-created website. I offered these bass lessons
to former students - online - and they loved them!
I then spent an
entire year developing a solution
for all bass players - from absolute beginner
to well advanced - needing and wanting to learn effectively
and affordably... and implemented the first and only
entire online electric bass guitar course
available to everyone.
My solution is
simple. It involves systematically progressive bass guitar
lessons that build on each other and are available for
anyone anywhere in the world at any time - because these
bass lessons are online!

and how they will benefit you.

The realistic bass player
"...your lessons are excellent, bite-sized exposés to new concepts. The goals are loose and focused on individual comfort level, as opposed to rigid memorization and drilling, or even worse, no goals at all. Additionally, the lessons are true to advertising. There is no false promise of becoming a bass god/dess overnight, and the lessons enforce a guilt-free mindset that only I am responsible for my own progress. In all seriousness, this is a program that bolsters my dreams of success. I CAN have a life and learn bass at the same time."
Casey Sagisi , USA, 16 June 2009
The bass player who had tried it all
"I have been playing "at" the bass for over 35 years, and have tried various lessons...from one-on-one, to books and CDs, to online lessons. For the first time in my life, I find myself saying "this guy can actually teach me something"!! So thank you very much for this opportunity. The opportunity to really learn how to play the bass."
Gordon Edwards , USA
The bass player who went from bedroom practice to regular gigs
"THANK YOU GEORGE! You have helped me improve so much in the last 12 months that I now play regularly with a band called "MOJO Filter" (and they even ask for my opinion on arrangements...sometimes). Thanks again George. Best of Bass to you."
Michael Onn, Australia
The bass player who speaks for all
"Thanks for sharing your knowledge and expertise on the bass and making it available to us in such a way that's interesting and easy to understand! Even if I'm on the other side of the world!"
Alberto Cortina, Mexico

Get lessons from the bass teacher that "comes to your house" and delivers bass lessons twice a week.

The first online
bass lessons contain information all bass players must

the ideal placement of your hands and fingers, rudimentary
rhythm exercises and grooves - including photos, AUDIO

and bass guitar practice techniques.

techniques, genres, and topics such as recording,
live playing, soloing, walking bass, improving your
timing, extracting bass grooves from drum rhythms, techniques
to enable you to play fast and difficult passages,
ideas to help you stay fresh, left-hand/right-hand independence,

The "late starter" testimonial
"Having never picked up a bass (or a guitar) in 56 years, I expected doom and gloom from day 1. To my astonishment, not only do these lessons provide an outstanding foundation for playing bass, they are incredibly fun. If you really work the lessons and pay close attention to every word you will find valuable nuggets of knowledge in every session no matter how "short" it seems.
The pace is perfect and for someone who only has spare time at odd hours, these lessons are perfect.
After spending 30 years away from music raising a family, I decided to learn something I have always wanted to do and Bass Lessons Online have given me the opportunity that I otherwise would have missed living in a tiny community.
Finally, if you are looking for stress reduction in your life and a smile on your face start Mr. Urbaszek's lessons today."

How you will learn (bass lesson format and structure)
You will receive each lesson via a link in an email to you.
Each lesson in the Beginner series of Bass Lessons Online is a web page that contains text and a dedicated video.
Photos are used wherever required to show hand positions and music notation.
Audio demonstrations (MP3s) associated with the lessons are included.
Jam tracks are provided with some lessons for you to play along with.
The entire Beginner series of Bass Lessons Online is structured in a step-by-step manner, with each lesson building on the previous.
The course is designed for all types of learners, be it aural, visual, textural, logical, slow learner, fast learner etc.
Each bass lesson contains a manageable portion of practical information and exercises.
The Beginner series of Bass Lessons Online is a "generic" bass guitar course, meaning that you learn skills that you can apply to all music genres.
You can use these lessons for 4, 5, or 6-string bass guitar, and for acoustic bass guitar.
You receive a User Name and Password to access your bass lessons online.
If you wish, you can download your lessons for offline access anytime.
The Intermediate series of Bass Lessons Online gets predominantly into generic aspects of contemporary music genres, such as Funk, Rock, Latin, African, Jazz, Hip-Hop and so on - all with an emphasis on showing you how to create your own bass lines.
These (Intermediate to Advanced) lessons currently do not contain video, simply because at this stage in your playing you no longer have to see how its done. It is more important to understand and use specific concepts.
The Intermediate series of Bass Lessons Online contains 10 lessons on improvisation concepts and their application. These improv. lessons are useful for anything from on-the-fly bass line construction to advanced bass soloing.
Only sign up for the
Intermediate series once you truly understand and can demonstrate solid fundamental musicianship and bass playing skills. If you are not sure, look at the lesson topics on this web page: LESSON TOPICS
Many players overestimate their skills and struggle at true Intermediate level, so I suggest - if you feel you are in that situation - you sign up for the Beginner course to make sure you have the fundamentals truly covered and have left no stone unturned.
