Think like a bass player.

Doable online step-by-step bass courses for beginner bass players.

Understand WHY behind the notes you play.

Are you tired of not making progress on bass & feel…

Clueless, you don’t know where to start.

Sort of lazy, as if you lack motivation – learning bass feels just too difficult.

Like you only ever learn fragments of songs, and you don’t have a plan.

Powerless trying to make sense of all the Youtube bass lessons.

You’re not the only one.

After many years, just fiddling with guitar and bass, I thought I’d actually make some efforts towards some structured learning. Bogdan is clear and concise and has been able to formalize many things I already “know”.

I’ve been playing for 35 years. I have always just accepted that I am just not fast. Now I know why! Bogdan has given me the tools to become the bass player I’ve always wanted to be! I just have to do the work now. Thanks B!

If you’re stuck with dreaming of becoming a bass player but never really making that next big step with your bass chops – it’s not that you have no talent or that you’re just too lazy to practice.

It’s something else, and happens to more people than you know.

Musicians get discouraged and crushed all the time.

I know you just want to play, but if you never seem to find the time to do it – it feels just so disappointing doesn’t it?

Look, the thing is:

The solution isn’t to just spend more time practicing. It’s KNOWING WHAT TO PRACTICE, having a clear path, and most importantly – knowing what to ignore.

I know it’s tough being a beginner on bass.

When you’re a beginner, you have no way of sorting all the lessons/courses/books/apps or knowing where to begin. It’s no wonder you’re not getting the joy out of playing bass.

Practicing ineffective exercises or plain confusing concepts is not going to help you.

Joy comes from being CONFIDENT PLAYING THE BASS. To get that level of confidence, you need to perform tunes right from the start (even as a complete beginner!).

Just to make it clear…

The online bass courses you’ll find in the Bass Road Academy only work if you put in the practice hours.

If you’re starting from scratch, you’ll just need to endure the first weeks/months to get to the phase where you enjoy playing bass and jamming your first bass lines.

So what’s the secret?

You’ll start each practice session knowing exactly what you need to do in order to make progress.

Step-by-step online bass courses will take you from being a complete beginner on bass to enjoying your weekends off jamming along with your favorite songs (or even playing in a band!).

That’s what I can help you achieve!

You need to use the practice time available to you in a smart way so that you can boost motivation and make faster progress.


Your bass practicing could look like this…

Start each practice session with clear & focused lessons

Always know what to practice, how and in which order

Make steady progress every weekend

Apply everything you learn by performing bass lines over music backing tracks

How does the payment work, is it secure?

Who's the author of the courses?

Bogdan is the author of all the core courses inside the Bass Road Academy.

Occasionally, some courses or learning materials might be presented by guest instructors.

Do you have a course for absolute beginners? I've never played bass before.

There is a perfect course for you if you’re just starting out – it’s called: Bass Guitar 101.

This course will take you on a path going from absolute beginner to becoming a confident bass player.

Are there any examples of courses and/or lessons that I can check out?

You can check out the courses syllabus for each of the courses currently available in the library, as well as demo videos to get a sense of what you’ll be learning.

Also, I’d like to invite you to register a free account so that you can check out free lessons and resources available.

No credit card is required to register a free account.

How are these courses different comparing to the other offers?

The main difference is that materials are designed for beginner bass players, feature little to no talking and have a clear progression path.

Each lesson builds upon the previous one, and these courses are carefully built to help you make progress in the most efficient way possible.

Other offers out there can feel like a buffet, difficult to make sense of, especially if you’re not an experienced player. Also they often just go too fast for beginners.

With Bass Road courses you’ll spend more time listening and doing practical assignments old-school-way, figuring things out as you go with clear instructions and instructor support along the way.

This way you get more out of your limited practice session times.

No more listening to fluff, looking for those 2 minutes of actually useful stuff.

What is an All Access Pass?

This means having access to ALL courses, lessons, and everything else available inside Bass Road Academy – exclusive to members-only.

I'm an advanced bass player with lots of experience. How advanced are the courses?

Courses at Bass Road are specifically designed for beginner bass players.

If you’re an advanced player, you might not find enough value in taking courses on this website.

Do I need to know how to read music to take part?

No, you don’t need to be able to read music to take courses. 

All courses and lessons feature easy-to-read tablature. 

There’s even a course on how to read tablature if you’re just starting out.

What equipment do I need to be able to follow courses?

You need a bass, an internet connection, and a computer, smartphone, OR tablet.

This website works on any device.

For video recording tasks you’ll need a way to shoot videos of your playing – I recommend just using your iPhone to shoot a quick video.

These video recording tasks are not required to take part in courses but are highly recommended to make quick progress (warning: you’ll have loads of fun shooting bass videos!).

Are courses delivered live or pre-recorded? Do I need to be there in a specific time to attend the lessons or...?

All courses are available 24/7 via online streaming.

You can go through the materials at your own pace. No stress or unrealistic expectations.

For the best results, it is recommended to practice at least 30 minutes a day but I get it if you’re a ‘weekend warrior’ juggling job and family duties.

If you have any other concerns that you’ll like to raise with me that I forgot to mention, then please contact me at support@bassroad.net and I’ll do my best to help you out.

The instructor presents the information in clear “building block” steps. This course is excellent for a beginning bass player, especially if he or she desires to play blues. The backing tracks are very helpful if one is working alone instead of with a band.

So far, I’m impressed and amazed by how instructor Radovic broken down important music theory that would take you long to learn when reading a book for instance. After watching a few lessons, I can now play walking bass lines using 6 root notes and their perfect 5th. Yeah!

STUDENTS have taken MY courses and this happened:

I’m amazed how much I learned in an hour. The various chord progressions using triads and scales with a blues rhythm was really great as the instructor slowly built on each step and gave great instruction inbetween.

Bill M.

I loved this course. It is explained so very well. Clear and easy to follow. I was in a group of uku players, and was handed the bass to play . No previous experience. So I just had to play the root notes most of the time and sing. This is like having a teacher in the room with you. I understand the Bass so much more now and with practice I’m sure I will get back to enjoying it. I just love the deep sound it produces.

Thank You Bogdan.

Course Taken: Walking Bass  – Quick Start Guide

Judith A.

It’s a short course. It’s a good course. I’ve seen a few videos of Victor Wooten and I’d say this is on par because the explanation doesn’t assume that you know something but starts simple and builds quickly. It helped make a few things very clear. 4 1/2 stars because 5 star courses don’t exist. Would buy again without hesitation.

Course Taken: Slap Bass For Beginners

Robert M.

As a rock bassist I’ve always found walking bass a bit of a mystery and something I have no confidence in … but it’s been a goal to learn and understand. Books I’ve had have made it seem even more mysterious. Bogdan slows things right down and keeps it simple. Almost too simple … I thought … Until the 2nd lesson when suddenly I found everything not so mysterious and my confidence improving when it came to building walking bass lines and wandering the fretboard. I suddenly also realized I didn’t quite have all the notes memorized as well as I thought. I would totally watch more videos by Bogdan.

Even as a solid bass player you can take a lot out of this course. Good structuring, clear instructions and effective exercises have helped me to optimize my exercise plan. Not only this course by Bogdan, but also others I like very much.

Not sure Bass Road is right for you?

Bass Road courses are surely not for everyone and I’m motivated to help you figure that out BEFORE you enroll as I don’t want to waste your time.

 If you’re a beginner or never-had-a-lesson-before bassist looking for quality guidance and instructional materials that can help you find a path to learning famous songs.

If you’re motivated to practice and improve your skills, and not afraid to put in the hours.

If you find stuff like walking bass amazing and would love to learn how to improvise lines on the go.

Always wanted to slap dat bass, finally get started with this flashy playing style with one of my bonus courses.

Is your dream to get up on stage at a local jam night and blast out a tasty blues jam with total strangers? You’ll learn how to do that.

Striving to learn how bass players think? Get in the mindset and not just learn to play mechanically.

Guitarists switching instrument who sound terrible on bass and are open to suggestions for improvement.

Are you the kind of person that dives headfirst into every good opportunity that presents itself? I don’t want passive course watchers or e-book collectors here at the Bass Road. I want to work with bass players who are willing to implement what they have learned and provide proof for that (like shooting a video of their performance!).

 Can’t get enough of new bass gear and enjoy playing for yourself? I want you in!

Looking for “instant” skills. Please continue looking and just skip this. If you think that you’ll get good at bass overnight, that’s not possible without hours of practice time.

 If you find yourself constantly checking out bass instructional materials, websites and DVDs but never actually start to practice and put effort into getting better at bass – then this website is not the best fit for you.

 Need a quick fix? Learning how to play the bass takes commitment, dedication, and focus. It takes time to build your bass persona and get to the next level.

 Do you expect guaranteed results? Seriously, I can show you the way, but you NEED to do the (bass) walk (no pun intended!).

Proficient bass players looking for lessons and courses for the advanced level. Sorry, but I’m fully focused on helping beginner and intermediate players here at the Bass Road Academy.

 No time for practice? I get it, but please join us later if you don’t have the time for bass right now.

It might feel weird to you that I’m listing all these reasons NOT TO JOIN one of my courses.

That’s because I only want to work with bass players who I can truly help make progress with their playing and music.
