His knowledge of the room is extensive and he gets amazing drum sounds in a matter of minutes! In this video he gives us a tour of the studio, it’s equipment and sits down with me to tell us about his journey and experiences recording.

    So 2019 is here, and my plan was to kick it off with something awesome…

    So I’m sticking to it.

    In this video you’re going to see Billy Sheehan (yep… I finally got him, whoop whoop!) break down how he’s developed one of the most insanely dialled in bass techniques of anyone on the planet…

    Here’s just a snap shot of what you’ll be checking out today:

    • You’re going to see how he’s been working slap bass into his technique arsenal (I’d never even seen him play slap bass before!)
    • How he learned how to play super fast 16ths… with just one finger (this’ll blow your mind it’s so freaky)
    • Why he regularly practises without an amp
    • How he found the balance between his string action and the tone he wants - there’s a fine line you should know about
    • How (and why) he developed the best 3 finger plucking technique I’ve ever seen
    • And WAY more…

    Also… in the comments under the video lemme know what your biggest struggle is with your technique right now - I love hearing from you guys and specifically what you’re struggling with, as it helps me make sure I’m creating the best lessons possible for you. If you could leave a comment it’d mean the world to me.

    As always, see you in the shed…

    Scott :)


    Right now over 30,000 bass players are enrolled in the Academy here at Scott's Bass Lessons and are making a real difference to their playing... if you're really serious about getting your bass playing together, click here to find out more and grab your 14 day free trial:

  • BILLY SHEEHAN - interview @Linea Rock 2016 by Barbara Caserta


    “Maestro Billy” on Sunday November 13th 2016 was in Milano, the town that he calls his second home (his sweet italian wife Elisabetta is from here!), for a special bass clinic: we’re honoured he also took time to come back and visit us in our studios at Linea Rock! I (Barbara) was more than happy to take the chance to make this in depth videointerview. Top class act: get ready to be once again surprised on how humility is what it comes down to, even when you’re such a talented phenomenon as Mr Billy Sheehan is! We started from these “school of rock clinics” and how they work, what he delivers, what he gets, how he keeps it fresh after so many years… and guess who was one of the first musicians attending his very first clinic? We also discussed his style which changed “the world of bass” forever, the “two handed tapping technique” and who really invented it (not Eddie Van Halen by the way!), his dreams as a kid, how he very first started playing and how he came up to his Green Tinted Sixties Signature Bass by Yamaha and develop it . Then the Talas 2012 reunion and also travelling back in time with the David Lee Roth Band last year and what really happened at “that” L.A. “surprise gig” cancelled last minute! Mr Big’s & The Winery Dogs’ stories (way back to the very first rehearsals) and of course new projects coming for both bands… And considering that Sheehan is named in the “Bassist Top List” of almost everybody, find out which is his “Top 3 Best Bassists of all Time”… And as complete artist, do you think he is more demanding as a bass player, songwriter or producer? Find out yourself! We talked also practising and his diet, on and off the road, to keep fit in every sense, working with Steve Vai thru the years at different levels, his autobiography book in the can, the risky business to live up to such a huge career like his… And have you ever wondered which is the last thing Billy do before going on stage, and the first when he gets off? And of course, last but not least, the crucial question of the moment: how does Billy foresee the USA with Donald Trump as a President? Discover his vote and why he made his very focused choice…
    Open hearted and open minded as it can get, God bless him!
    Enjoy & Comment! Thanks for watching...
