    Good day, I hope you are all well.

    My 17 yr old boy has taken to bass playing. He's doing a good job of figuring out bass lines. I'd like to get him some online lessons. Looking for a good, personable teacher that works over Zoom or whatever. I prefer a teacher that has their own .pdf files for material to one that will require me to get a Hal Leonard book.

    All replies are welcome. Thanks in advance. :)

    Will start with the free trial on the Fender Play site.

    I know you want one on one lessons for your son but if you or he get a chance, and maybe as a supplement to one on one, check out “real bass lessons” on YouTube.

    This young man is an amazing bassist, talented performer and an amazing teacher. His name is Ben and I've known him for approximately twenty years.

    He does online video lessons

    Take a look at website, contact him and see if you get along.

    Please tell him I sent you...
