The biggest thing I did to improve my bass playing was join SBL.”

— Randy from Norwalk, OH
Go deep with your bass heroes
Scott Devine Live

Imagine being able to ask your bass heroes anything, in real time.

Imagine asking jazz wizard Michael League for guidance about how to play more creative improvisations and solos.

Asking three-time Grammy winner Justin Raines for help crafting your next big pop or gospel tune.

Or even getting thrash-metal legend David Ellefson to reveal his picking secrets to help you shred at warp-speed.

How much better do you think your playing would be after even one conversation like that? I’m betting it would be a real game-changer for you.

I know it was for me.

In fact, if I didn’t study under the legendary Gary Willis when I was in my 20s, I wouldn’t be the player I am today. And SBL certainly wouldn’t exist, either.

Scott Devine & Gary Willis

Most A-list bass players are too busy with their own careers to take on students.

In the first 30 days of membership, I have advanced well beyond everything I've done in the last 20 years.”

— SBL Student “Red Scorpion”

And in the rare case they do teach lessons, studying with true A-list bass players is expensive. (I invested more than $10,000 when I studied with Gary — and that was several decades ago!)

But that’s all about to change…

Because with the support of all the amazing bass players in the SBL community, we’ve grown into the largest bass school on the planet. We’re actually the largest online music school for ANY one instrument!

Which means, thanks to the inspiring and vibrant community we have here at SBL, A-list bass players are excited to mentor our students. Even if they won’t do it anywhere else.

And now, for the first time ever, SBL Members can get mentorship from some of the biggest names in bass.

What time are the SBL Mentors calls? Will you have options for all time zones?
All Mentors live workshops will be scheduled for 7pm GMT (that’s 2pm eastern and 11am pacific) to give the maximum number of people the opportunity to participate.

Additionally, all sessions will be recorded and easily accessible within the academy, so if you’re not able to attend, you can always catch the playback.
How much experience do I need?
Our Mentors are here to assist all of our members — whether you picked up a bass for the first time yesterday or you’ve been playing for decades. Plus we also have courses for bass players of ALL levels — including total beginners. And we have one-click filters that make it easy to find courses that match your skill level.
I’ve got a lot on my plate — how will I find time?
We have an interactive calendar that makes it easy for you to RSVP and get reminders for the weekly Mentors calls. And you don’t need to attend each one. Pick the top one or two Mentors you want to learn from the most, and make a point to join their sessions.

We also make it easy for you to start and stop the courses in the SBL Membership whenever you need to.

All you have to do to pick up where you left off — even if it’s been a while — is click the “In Progress” button on the courses page. We’ll show you all the courses you have started, but not finished, so you can get back to where you were.
How much is The SBL Membership after the free trial ends?

Your SBL Membership dues depend on your payment plan.

Right now Membership is $29/month when you pay monthly or $14.50/month when you pay annually.

But remember: those prices will be going up when the timer on this page hits zero on 14th April 2021, midnight PST.

So you have to enroll now to lock in our current Membership dues before they go up.

Plus you can also get an extra $50 off — for life — when you choose an Annual Membership once your free trial ends!

Which means the Annual Membership is only $124 per year with the discount right now.

And instead of paying $29/month, you will pay only $10.33/month. That’s less than 35 cents a day.

So ask yourself, is it worth less than 35 cents a day to become the bass player that you’ve always wished you could be?

Because that sounds like a fair deal to me…

Especially when you remember that you’ll be locking in our lowest Membership rate — for life — just days before our prices go up for good.

So claim your free, 14-day trial now. And choose the Annual Membership to save an extra $50 for life after your free trial ends.

What if the SBL Membership is not for me?

First, you have nothing to lose when you enroll in the SBL Membership now. You can try the entire Membership — with absolutely no restrictions — totally free for two full weeks.

And once you see how game-changing the lessons, seminars, and community are inside the Members’ Area I bet you’ll forget all about needing a guarantee.

In fact, one of our Members said…

“I feel very fortunate to have found this site to learn from. I have tried books, DVD’s, YouTube, and nothing has helped me like this site. It really feels like Scott is my personal bass tutor! What a steal for $29 per month.”

But in the event you decide the SBL Membership is not for you, you can cancel your subscription — no questions asked — with one quick message to our friendly support team. You won’t be charged as long as you do so during your 14-day free trial.

So claim your free, 14-day trial now.
