Nathan East ArtistWorks Lessons


ArtistWorks, the leading interactive lifestyle social learning platform, today announced an expansion of high definition lessons in their Online Electric Bass School with Nathan East.

Nathan East filmed more than two dozen new chops-building lessons in October, including a full series on building speed for the right and left hands and arpeggios, as well as new songs from his extensive library of Platinum performances.

In addition, the upgrade includes new live performances with East (Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Phil Collins) and former Mr. Big/Racer X member and ArtistWorks Rock Guitar teaching artist Paul Gilbert. The performances represent over two hours of material and include analysis and comment by these two universally respected instrumentalists. It’s the first time Gilbert and East have performed together and the resulting performances, discussion and analysis are both inspiring and hugely educational.

ArtistWorks’ Online Electric Bass School combines hundreds of high definition video lessons from bass icon Nathan East with a thriving community of bass players who have the ability to submit practice videos and get personalized video feedback from East. These Video Exchanges are paired together on the site and made available for the entire community to learn from.

The Video Exchange interactions each become new lessons unto themselves, forming a constantly growing and evolving curriculum reflecting the interests of the community.

The new lessons and performances bring the total number of pre recorded and Video Exchange lessons to well over 200 – more than five hours of bass instruction video. And of course, members always have the ability to show Nathan what they’re playing and get his expert personalized feedback.

The newly Upgraded Online Bass School with Nathan East costs $90 for three months, $150 for six months or $240 for six months unlimited access.

Nathan East's Fiery Solo Return

Even though Nathan East didn’t rev up his solo career until 2014, with his Grammynominated self-titled debut, it seems like he has flashed solo-artist potential since cracking the session and touring scene in the early ’80s, with his melodic, vocally phrased bass lines and scat-and-play solos.
