Good musicianship doesn’t start with getting sprinkled with magic fairy dust at birth, as some people think. It begins with the fundamentals of knowing an instrument.  

If you don’t develop a ‘knowing’ of your instrument to the point that you don’t even have to think about it, how will you ever get the music in your head to come out of your instrument?  

Not knowing the notes on your instrument is one of the key areas that keep good players from getting meaningful work.  

Anthony Wellington has observed that musicians are the only ‘professionals’ that brag about not knowing stuff. (Can you imagine an accountant bragging about not being able to count?!)

Anthony is on a one-person mission to change all that.

We recently did this virtual clinic replay and live Q&A with Anthony Wellington for our Bassology Around the World Cuba 2023 students. Tamatha moderated the clinic replay and  Anthony answered students’ questions afterward.

The live student questions were so good after the replay, and the content in the video was so good we realized that we should offer this clinic to everyone!  Because…,

It’s that time of the year! You know, when so many of us make resolutions and bomb out on them by January 15th? 

According to Forbes, nearly 80% of people admitted to abandoning their New Year’s resolutions by February every year. As the old saying goes, “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.”

I’m going to go out on a bold limb and say that, if you don’t know the notes on your instrument, no matter what your music resolutions or goals are, you will fail.

And honestly, for anybody who doesn’t know the notes on the instrument that they say they love, it comes down to one thing:  a lack of discipline.

The good news is this can be your year for success!

Anthony Wellington is well known for his logical, efficient, effective, and thorough approach to any music topic! 

Learning ALLLLLLLLL the notes on your instrument IS possible, and in a reasonable amount of time.

Anthony developed and teaches an efficient, logical, tried-and-true Bassology method for learning allllll the notes on your bass or guitar!  (or mandolin or banjo or ukulele). 

And, he is happy to share that method with you!  Not for $90, like a private Bassology lesson, but for $26. 

So, for $26…, what are you waiting for? 2024? 2030? This can be your year! Bring it, 2023!

But wait a sec!  Isn’t Anthony Wellington a bass player?  He is that, too.  He is first and foremost a musician and a world-renowned music educator.  

The cool thing is, an electric bass guitar has a G string.  A ukelele has a G string.  A banjo has a G string.  An electric guitar has a G string.  A mandolin has a G string.  And so on, which is why…,

Bassology’s approach to learning the notes applies to any stringed instrument.

As we already said, not knowing alllllllll the notes on your instrument is one of the key areas that keep good players from getting meaningful work. 

Don’t let yourself be one of them!

We also have a lot of laughs and fun!  It’s EDU-TAINMENT!  These are FUN-DAMENTALS.  That said…, Bassology is a school.  Anthony always says, “I don’t take myself seriously, but I do take what I do seriously!”

Welcome Letters are sent from the day of the clinic.  

The Welcome Email will have the login and password for the clinic and will go to the email address you use for PayPal.

You should save to your contacts for the email you use for PayPal.  If you don’t, you risk having your Welcome Letter going to your junk or promotions folder.

On Time is Late

Please note on your calendar that we begin roll call 15 minutes before start time and that the virtual room is locked promptly at start time.  If you are late, you will not be able to get into the virtual room.  Our clinics “begin at the beginning” and quickly build upon a solid foundation.  You simply cannot miss even 5 minutes of Anthony’s teaching.  Don’t be late!

“On Time is Late” is a foundational principal of Anthony Wellington’s life and he aims to instill this value in all of his students.
