Always wanted to learn how to play walking bass, but it was to difficult?

This course is a follow up to my best-selling “Walking Bass – Quick Start Guide” course. In this course I’ll take you further and you’ll learn how to strategically compose cool sounding walking bass lines from scratch. Yes – you will be COMPOSING and IMPROVISING on your OWN! By the end of the course, I guarantee that you’ll be able to do it! In this course, I’ll show you a strategic and simple way to construct and improvise walking bass lines right there on the spot using chord tones and different intervals. The concepts are easy to understand and it’s something all bass pros know about, but rarely share. It took me years to figure out what I’m about to show you, and you’ll be able to learn it in just a few weeks of practice. You’ll then have a new bass skill that will stay with you forever and you’ll be proud of it – I’m sure.

Please watch the free preview videos to get a taste for what’s inside.

This course is shot in HD video and features quality bass playing audio mixed with the backing tracks. The course is split into eight chapters, each adding a new note to our “easy walking bass” strategy. This means that each chapter is very doable – you just need a bit of practice but you’ll understand concepts involved immediately.

This course includes:

  • PDF, Guitar Pro 5 & Guitar Pro 6 tabs for each playing example
  • Interactive backing track videos for jamming and practice
  • English subtitles
  • Unlimited forum help and instructor feedback
  • Walking bass pro tricks & strategies
  • Fun playing examples

I’m here to help YOU, so please don’t be shy 🙂

This course is designed as a walking bass fundamentals tutorial. We won’t be going into any complicated theory and walking bass concepts – I’ll just show you stuff that you really have to know to be able to enjoy walking bass. You’ll learn walking bass essentials and basics. Everything else, when it comes to walking bass, just builds up on this foundation that you’ll gain. I’ll show you fundamentals that’ll enable you to enjoy walking bass as a playing style and unlock your improvisation ability on bass. Walking bass sounds impressive, so this is an amazing skill to have. There is no magic behind it, rather simple ideas and strategies that you can apply immediately to understand which notes can you play over which chords. 

This course, does not rely on music theory much. You’ll learn some theory related concepts such as intervals that you have to know in order to enjoy walking bass, but I tried to skip theory that you don’t actually need as much as possible. This is a problem of many other walking bass courses out there, as those just dig too deep into music theory that it becomes boring too soon. You’ll just need to have a very basic understanding of how to find certain notes on the fretboard (in basic, most often used positions on the neck) and be able to play quarter notes steadily. Since walking bass heavily relies on chords, you’ll need to have a basic understanding of chords and root notes, but we cover those topics within the course so you can just dig into it and ask me questions along the way if something is not clear.

Please send me your feedback about the course. What did you like? What did you not like? How could I improve it? Your feedback means a lot to me and I need to in order to better shape the course content for YOU.

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela

  3. Jiaqing Fan

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
