Beginner to Badass course

Just a quick question on this series, if you can play the “final” song in the lesson is it safe to move on or should you go through the entire lesson anyway? A major problem that I have is that I want to absorb all the knowledge but I find myself getting a little bored because I can play the lessons without any issue. I want to skip ahead to a more suitable place but I don’t know if I’d be doing myself a disservice by doing so. Anyone else have a similar issue?

Move on.

You can always go through the course a second time… many of us have.

I was thinking about doing that and maybe just checking out the theory lessons in each lesson. My main concern was maybe missing some wisdom that Josh gives out during the slower exercises or something like that.

You don’t want to miss out on Josh’s wisdom, or his incredible wit.

It’s up to you…

This is always a hard call. There are so many little details Josh shares throughout the course.

If you can stand to slow yourself down to listen to all of them, then do that.

If slowing yourself down makes you not want to play, then move on.

Everyone learns a little different and part of getting the most out of the course is finding a pace that works for you.

Appreciate the feedback from a couple of BassBuzz veterans. Thank you.

Before I started B2B, I had been practicing using free online lessons (both by Josh and from other channels) for about two months. After that, I was usually able to pretty much nail all workouts for the first three or four modules at the first attempt. I still did all of them though, not just for confirmation that I could do them, but also because Josh regularly expands on certain topics that he covered during the lessons in the workouts. If you skip lessons and/or workouts, you might miss some of those tips and tricks that I found valuable. However, most of that stuff will probably be repeated in later lessons, so it may not be a big deal.

I listen to all the easy stuff at 1.5-2x play speed to get through it quicker.

If you already play bass I suppose there is a lot you’ll fly through but some of Josh’s banter make it entertaining enough to keep watching

Absolutely right Pam. I run through these shapes and funk boxes every day.
