In-ear monitors. A bit pricey at $1699. Can't see spending more for in-ear monitors than I did for home studio speakers ($550).

Got your in-ear monitors yet? These have 9 drivers in them and produce a sonically delicious sound especially in the bass frequencies! https://www.twice.com/the-wire/64-audios-n8-customizable-in-ear-monitor

Thank you, Nathan! I've been learning so much by watching the videos. Even though I've been playing a long time, I started with the beginner-level videos and have been refreshing my memory about fundamentals and also learning all sorts of new stuff. Thanks again!

Hi All! I'm just back from a tour in Beijing, China ... Tokyo. Japan & Seoul, S.Korea with my band ... we had a GREAT time! This week I'm off to play at Carnegie Hall in NY and then to Omaha to perform for (believe it or not) Warren Buffet! I love my life and all the wonderful experiences I have had directly resulting from playing bass! I'd love to hear about your experiences and travels as well. Keep practicing and of course have FUN! http://m.wikitree.co.kr/main/news_view.php?id=341104

Hello, all! I'm excited to be a student at ArtistWorks and to learn from Nathan East! I've been playing a long time, and looking forward to learning how to breathe some new life into my playing. Peace!

Thanks a million, Nathan. I've just ordered the Total Scales and Techniques book. It looks like exactly what I was looking for. I really appreciate the tip. I am so ready to have fun with this. 1000 thanks!

Yes, learning music is a great way to exercise our brains for longevity and good times!

Thanks for the breath of fresh air Nathan, I am 48 and my goal is to eventually play bass in a cover band. I think learning music is a great way to exercise our brains for longevity and good times!

Welcome Zem! I have a friend that has just started lessons at the age of 92 so age is not a factor when it comes to furthering your education. Thanks for your kind words and enjoy your experience here! It's fun to track your development and see the results over time. Enjoy and I look forward to seeing you around campus! :-)

Hi Everyone. Call me Zem. I live and work in NYC. I am very excited to get started on the curriculum. I am a late starter (54 three weeks ago), but I'm committed to focusing time and effort on my bass development. I just watched the documentary "For The Record" which completely sealed the deal for me! Thanks again.

Welcome ianmcgilvrey! I'm not Canadian, but I play hockey every week with a bunch of guys from Canada her in AZ. My team uses the Flames jersey colors.

Welcome Ian to our ArtistWorks community! ianmcgillvrey Great to have you here and see you around campus!

Hey everyone, I'm new and thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Ian from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Any other Canadians or Calgarians out there? I've been a drummer for years and just recently decided to take up the bass and I'm having a blast so far! I've been loving the lessons and videos so far and I'm looking forward to being part of this community.
