Hi, I'm Steve Rosati,
Your "Bass Made Simple" Instructor.
From Steve Rosati,
Professional Bass Player & Instructor
Let me ask you:
Would you like to play your favorite songs or join a band?
Music is a life-long journey -- and I want you to start rockin' the bass and having
The funny thing is, a lot of players and teachers miss the most crucial
points and end up sounding like crap! (lol)...and I'll explain what
I mean in just a second.
But before I go any further, let me share with you my
"3 step formula" to sounding great on the bass:
Learn my "1-2-3" steps to
playing your favorite songs on your bass.
Step 1: Learn the correct right hand technique.
Many players neglect their right hand. They focus on the left because it's selecting which
note to play, but the right hand is sooo important! A good right hand
technique makes all the difference between sounding wonderful or
sounding horrible because your right hand is the one actually striking the string and
producing a tone.
Step 2: Learn the correct left hand technique.
The key to playing the bass well
is learning the right technique.
Once you have your right hand down, you need to learn
how to move across the fretboard. You'll want to make
sure you develop the reach, the dexterity, the strength,
and the proper touch... so you can easily play
whatever you want.
It's not complicated. But you do need a systematic approach
to achieve maximum results in the shortest possible time.
Step 3: Learn your favorite songs.
This is the fun part. If you did your homework in
the first 2 steps and learned the correct technique,
the rest is a breeze. And guess what, it doesn't
have to be boring, difficult, or take years to get there.
Once you got technique, you just need to follow
a few basic principles to play any tune you want.
I guess I should tell you a bit about myself...
My name is Steve Rosati.
I started playing at a very young age and I've been teaching
bass since I was in high school. I earned a degree in Jazz bass
performance in 2001 and I've been a working musician and
teacher ever since.
"I learned music from my dad
from a very young age."
I've taught at bass bootcamps, I'm endorsed by companies
such as Citron, Fedora, Phil Jones, and Gruv... And I've
studied with and even shared the stage with legends like
Chuck Hammer and Pat Martino.
And today, I'm super excited about my new
DVD series "Bass Made Simple".
Yes, there are a ton of books, teachers, and videos already
out there. But what I discovered is that almost none of them
were taking the time to help the beginner bass student develop
a really solid foundation.
In fact, as a full-time instructor, I've seen hundreds
of students come through my door, and many of them (even if
they've been playing for years) already have some
seriously BAD habits and technique before I help them.
I'm not saying this to brag, but to let you know that I've created
something special with my "Bass Made Simple DVDs".
These DVDs can shortcut your learning curve and help you
become an accomplished bassist in a dramatically short time.
I'll start you off with the right habits, techniques, and shortcuts to make
your bass playing fun.
It's all about building
a rock-solid foundation.
I really want to give you a rock-solid foundation that will help you alot when it comes to playing bass. So in Bass Made Simple, I focus on
helping you develop the right technique so that everything else flows.
DVD 1 starts off by focusing on the right hand. This is what most beginners neglect,
but its really one of the keys to a great sound.
- The standard "tripod" grip that gives you that natural feel for your fingers
and the smooth sound. It's the best way to get started and
gives you more flexibility and speed. 11:21
- Where to anchor your thumb when you're playing. The
answer may surprise you... But this will make it
a cinch to get good sounds. 13:58
- The "rest stroke" is a great way to avoid bum notes
and give you that nice tight sound 16:30
- The "paintbrush" technique helps you avoid a classic blunder
that many beginners do (and it makes them sound like crap!) 17:52
And we're just gettin' started.
Discover some cool
bass tricks to improve your playing...
Here's more juicy stuff:
- The "basic 8" pattern - its a killer exercise that will
give you a basic level of chops. 32:34
- The "backwards 8" is another tool you can use to
get your skills happening in hurry. 34:16
- The secret to being comfortable and how to fight
the #1 enemy of the bass player. 40:14
I'll show you the key patterns
you need to build your chops.
And there's a lot more stuff on DVD 1.
I spend a lot of time on the right hand technique because your right hand is kind of
like the soul of your sound. It's a very personal choice and there's different approaches.
So thats why I show you a variety techniques so you can find what feels
natural and comfortable for you, including how to play with a pick. (I'll actually
show you 2 different picking techniques)
Let's move on to DVD 2...
Remember, the key to playing with ease is developing great technique from the start.
On DVD 2, we focus in on the left hand. Would you believe there's a lot of professionals with poor left hand technique?
Yeah, they can "get by", but its a lot easier to do it correctly!
Want to play with speed?
Then pay attention to the
floating thumb technique.
- The key to good technique is small and controlled movements. No need to do crazy windmills because they waste a lot of energy. Watch at 14:41.
- Tone is more important than technique. People would rather play with someone who plays 2 or 3
notes that sound beautiful than a million notes that sound horrible.
Jammin' with bass legend Victor Wooten.
- 3 ways to get better tone and create different sounds and tonal options- see 17:45.
Introducing the "vomit" exercise. Sounds weird but it will maximize your dexterity. 21:01.
Did you know you can practice even without your instrument? Yes, you can
increase your hand strength and dexterity while you're in the car, on the bus,
or wherever. See 22:34.
Once I show you how to develop the proper left hand technique...
You'll be able to move with ease
across the entire fingerboard.
2 things you should never do with the left hand. Avoid these and you'll get the most
out of your playing. Yes, all of a sudden you'll be able to move easily across the fingerboard
because your fingers will be angled the right way. 27:26

virtuoso Pat Martino."
How to avoid getting too much fret noise. The solution is simple. See 29:33.
Want to make sure all your fingers are kicking ass? You do if you want to play
all your favorite songs! The key is playing the right combination of notes. See 39:51.

Learn the names of notes all over the fretboard and put together
cool melodic combinations. 53:03.

You need to know this if you want to jump into a jam session and rock . 1:03:47.
The pentatonic scale -- this is the king of all bass scales. I'll show you
both the major pentatonic and minor pentatonics and how to play it at 1:15:03
Start playing all your favorite songs.
- How to play Pixie's "Where's my mind". Grunge at it's best! A great tune, and a great example of how to start
playing over chord changes. 3:31.
- The "pedaling" technique is another great way to play through a chord progression. 4:05
Is there anything more fun
than rocking out on stage?
- How to play "Hey ya" - by Outkast. It's an awesome hip-hop/pop song that really moves. See 5:32.
- The partial bar rhythm is a cool twist that you can use to spice up songs
or write your own riffs. 6:02
- The secret of power chords. This lets you create solid basslines in almost any situation. See 8:49.
- The root-five technique. It's great for filling in space and gives you a great
"texture" to your playing. 9:34.

- How to create movement with a walking bassline pattern - 14:10.
- How to "target" notes so you can play without looking at the neck.
Great if you have to play in a dark club. 21:37
