Announcing: The Band Collection
12 Tutorials From The Band Back Catalogue...
I've got some larger collections of song tutorials for sale on my website - but I often get asked: do you have any smaller, band specific collections? Like an Eagles Collection? Or a David Bowie Collection? Or a collection of songs by the Band? Or the Allman Brothers? Or Bruce Thomas's great bass lines with Elvis Costello? And so on.
So the fourth of these collections - The Band Collection - is now live!
What Do I Get?
The Band Collection consists of 12 Song Tutorials and each song has its own dedicated page. Navigating to the song you wish to learn is simple - and everything you need to learn that song will be at your fingertips.
Each song tutorial in the Band Collection includes the following:
Each song is split into its main parts – e.g. verse, chorus, bridge, etc – and each main part has its own video tutorial. There are two styles of tutorial used – note by note (my older style) or performance temp/slow tempo playthroughs with picture in picture editing (my new style). The notation and tab for each section is posted so that you can cross-reference as you’re going through the video portion of the lesson.
Downloadable PDFs For Each Song
Each song has its own downloadable PDF which contains the notation and tab and some thoughts on playing through the song – and often a ‘road map’ of the song (i.e. what order you play the basic part to play through the song).
Bass Less Backing Tracks
Some of the song tutorials have a bass less backing track to play along to.
Detailed Band In A Box Programming Instructions
The PDF for each song in the Working Basslines library also contains detailed instructions on how to program the individual song sections in Band In A Box. These instructions include key, suggested real tracks to use, suggested performance tempos and so on.
(Note: Band In A Box is NOT included with The Collection – but is the best practice software out there for bass players FOR ALL THEIR PRACTICE (IMO) and is highly recommended.)

Let me give you a short demonstration of how everything is set up for a song from The David Bowie Collection - the principles are the same for the songs in The Band Collection.
So How Much Does The Band Collection Cost?

P.P.S RECAP of the above. For just $20 you'll get detailed tutorials to The Band songs listed. Each tutorial covers the major sections of the song and you'll see video for each section, plus interactive soundslice. Additionally there is notation and tab in the downloadable PDF. There is also detailed programming instructions to create practice tracks for each song chunk with the software Band In A Box (Band In A Box NOT included) And for most songs there's a bass less backing track for you to play with once you've learned all the song sections. Don't forget that you're covered by my 30 Day No Questions Asked Guarantee if you decide this is not for you - so all the risk is on me.
Q.How Long Is This Resource Available To Me Once I've Joined?
A.My business plans work in 5 year cycles…and I’m currently a year into my second cycle – so the first answer is at least 4 years. I don’t envisage selling or closing How To Play Bass Dot Com so the realistic answer is probably much longer than that. 4 years is as good a place as any to start.
Q.I Don't Have Band In A Box - Are The Programming Instructions Of Any Use?
A.Firstly you might not have Band In A Box now, but if you’re serious about getting better at bass guitar then this should be high on your wish list. It’s the best practice tool for bass players out there. Secondly, even if you don’t have Band In A Box the programming instructions include screen shots of how each song section looks when programmed in Band In A Box – and this will give you a clear guide to the chord progressions being used in each section of the song.
