(on the Today Show)
Professional Session and Touring Bassist "Marc - The Bass Wizard" reveals all the techniques, tricks and secrets that gained him millions of views on YouTube and catapulted his career as a top call session bassist in Hollywood.
I know what you're thinking...
But I'm Not "Talented Enough" to play like Victor Wooten
Just another one of the lies we tell ourselves ...
You might have watched videos of players like Victor Wooten or Marcus Miller on YouTube and been completely amazed by how they play.
You know you want to learn how to play like they do.
You've searched YouTube endlessly for lessons and tutorials, but so far you haven't made any progress with any of those lessons.
You're frustrated with the conflicting information on YouTube.
You're more confused than you were before you started watching all those "lessons" and you're about to give up and tell yourself you're just not talented enough for this stuff.
But the truth is: With the right information, guidance, knowledge and work ethic ANYONE can learn to play like all of the top pros.
How Do I Know?
Because I have taught several students in that position and took them from zero to mastering this style of playing in a small amount of time with just a few adjustments.
Because learning to play this stuff did NOT come naturally for me at all.
It took me YEARS until I finally started making any progress. And the reason, as I found out many years into the struggle, was because I didn't have the right information right from the start. I spent years playing completely wrong and developing bad habits and muscle memory that were only getting me further from accomplishing my goal.
When I started playing and learning all this stuff, there was no YouTube or videos. I had nothing but a CD player, so I couldn't even SEE how these guys were doing it. I was just trying to figure it all out by ear, which is what led to my poor technique and bad habits early on.
Fast Internet and Videos have made it easier than ever for people to learn.
But the problem is that literally ANYONE can post a video lesson or tutorial, and if they come up when you search for a lesson, you'll watch their video and learn what they're teaching you without even questioning it.
What if they are teaching you poor technique? What if they are teaching you the exact techniques that held me back from mastering this style for so many years?
To make matters worse, when you learn from YouTube there is no structure.
Which videos should you watch first? Where do you start? What do you watch next?
Not having any structure or order in your learning is like reading a book out of order.
Imagine if you bought a book to learn a certain skill, and instead of reading it from the first page to the last, you just opened it on a random page. Then after reading that page, you jumped to another random page. And you kept doing this over and over again... How much would you learn from that book? Would you actually learn anything, or would it only leave you frustrated and confused?
This is what you are doing to your bass education when you only consume free YouTube content.
It's not hard to see why your progress is slow or non-existent.
Now you're thinking that the next logical step is finding a private teacher in your area. But again... how do you find someone that is actually qualified to teach you? What if you live in an area that doesn't have many professional bass players?
And at $50 an hour, how many lessons are you going to need to learn all this stuff? The cost can really add up. I personally have invested over $100,000+ into my bass education. Between all the private teachers I had growing up and my time at Berklee College of Music, I've studied with over 40 teachers and spent a lot of money and time getting all this information.
This is why my colleagues think I'm crazy for giving all this information away for such a low one-time cost.
And I'll be honest, I've thought the same thing. But after getting so many messages from people who watch my YouTube videos asking me to teach them and to show them how I play, I decided it was finally time that I packaged this information and put it out into the world so that others can also benefit from it and learn a lot faster and for a lot less money than I did.
