I’m not sure if this is the right topic for this. If not, my apologies.
I finished the B2B 3 days ago (took me 32 days. Amazing). It was a fantastic journey but now I’m thirsting for more. So I found this course at Udemy: “The Professional Bass Masterclass 1, 2 and 3. It has a lot of positive reviews. But I’m sure the people who left the reviews don’t know a teacher like @JoshFossgreen.
So, has anyone here tried this course? Any inputs? Thank you in advance.
Im not familiar with that course, but based upon my experience with Udemy, I doubt its any advancement from the B2B course you just finished, and I doubt you’ll learn anything new.
I’ve never paid more than $10-20 for a Udemy course, so have never felt ripped off. Maybe you’ll get a nugget or 2 out of it, but I would wait for one of their frequent sales.
@PamPurrs thank you for your reply. I think the $25 isn’t bad but I’ll follow your recommendation and wait for a sale. I’m mostly interested on learn the scales modes and practical use of it. I thought about give Scott’s Bass a try but I don’t think he’s very “academic” teaching. Still, he offers a 14 days trial before charge for the subscription. And that’s the most amazing about Josh: he’s a great educator, besides being extremely charismatic and a great player. Many “teachers” out there definitely can play a lot but they have no talent teaching what they know. @JoshFossgreen please, we are ready for the next course. Hopefully it will happen in 2023.
In that case, I would recommend the Scale Essentals course over at TalkingBass. I took that course concurrent with B2B, and found it to be quite an excellent and comprehensive study of ALL the different scales and modes. Mark Smith is a superb teacher, and I have taken many of his courses. It’s a bit more than Udemy, but the quality of the course and the downloadable study materials make it a bargain.
I’ve got that Udemy course (I get Udemy access through work) and although I’m not too far into it so far I’d say it’s not bad, but not great.
The teacher is very straight-laced and although it’s mostly theory focused it doesn’t seem sufficiently in-depth so far.
I’m not the biggest fan of Mark Smith’s stuff but I’d say you’re better off going with his courses.
