In an effort to keep my review mine, and mine alone, I have not read any of the other reviews at the time Of writing this.
It was Fun and exciting. The material was fast paced and energetic, yet thourough and filled with all of what you need to be well on your way to a life of bass Ta musicians level. The way the course is structured, you could be a total noob to bass, or music in general, and easily follow along at a pace you can handle, some may go slower then terms, but all can ge thru. That said, if ou have musical experience, even bass experience, you can still start at the very beginning of the course, learn basics you may have skipped in previous lessons / playing experience and still have a good time, never being predicted to death.
In fact the ole course is fun, amusing, interesting and very, very informative. That is the genius of the course, you are fun engaged, and having a laugh, and great time, you often dont even realize you are actually learning, but you are. And because you are excited about the lessons and workouts, I believe you learn more, faster, and retain the information longer.
I state playing approx 2 months before signing up for the B2B course. I bought a Bass to kill time while on disability, a few weeks before the co I’d-19 quarantine. I bought a few books on mastering fretboard, and basic beginnner bass to start off. I played guitar in my youth, but had not played probably 15 years. I was never a guitar student per say. I learned the songs I wanted to play with gage bands, omcovers, some original, but not much else. I wanted to play bass since I ffirst got interested in music as a kid, but ended up on guitar cuz it was easier for me to play what I wanted with who I wanted back then. Now I wanted to approach bass completely differently, partly because I am 48 now, not 20, and am more mature, have patients, and I knew I did not do it right on guitar.
So I started teaching myself, 2 months ago with the beginner books, fretboard exercises, and the major scale. That’s as far as I got in the books when I started searching YT, and found BassBuzz and other programs. I started watching random videos, an ruing put them in a logical order to learn in, and started getting a little lost.
I started another online lesson plan, but the free one. It was really gd at first, but right after arpeggios, it started pig too quickly, and got a Little frustrated. I could have stuck it out, but I would have had to repeat lessons 5-10 times before moving on, mst likely.
I was determined, and probably would not have stopped trying, but I came back to visit BassBuzz more, and lurking in the forum and reading about B2B a bit more. Still a little hesitant to spend the money, I finally said to myself, “self”. Just buy it, it isn’t for you, you get the money back.
I am so happy that I bought B2B. I feel like 20x the player, no, musician that I was when I started the curse (6 days ago). Honestly, all the prep I did for two months, that sat in my head, kind of in a fog, because,e crystal clear by the time I finished the course.
Am I still a beginner. YES.
DO I have a clue. YES
B2B worth it. YES
I am going to redo the lessons on my 5 string.
When there is a follow up course to B2B, I am all in. I still have a lot f way to go, but I know the car I am driving, I know the road I am on, an have a map to get me where I am going. Game on!
I am going to take my daughter thru this course too.
