    About Roy Vogt - from the TMBG website:

    How many people can lay claim to a career so varied that it includes appearances on MTV's Headbanger's Ball, Montreaux Jazz Festival, Montreal Jazz Festival, the London Palladium, the Grand Ole Opry and the Kremlin? From Punk to Funk, the simplicity of Country and Blues to the complexity of HyperJazz and World Beat? Not many. Yet premier bassist and educator Roy Vogt has done all that and more.

    The first person to receive a Masters degree in Electric Bass Performance - from the University of Miami's prestigious music school - Roy has been pursuing the art of bass for more than forty years. In addition, he is recognized as one of the finest educators in the world, mentoring dozens of successful professionals, including the legendary Willie Weeks. Electric, fretless, upright, you name it. If it plays low notes and has strings, Roy is a master at playing it, and in teaching others to do the same.

    Over his four-decade career, Roy has recorded or performed with an amazing list of top stars, including Larry Coryell, Gerald Veasley, Victor Wooten, Dave Weckl, Tom Scott and the LA Express, Chester Thompson, Miroslav Vitous, Glenn Campbell, BJ Thomas, Chet Atkins, Englebert Humperdink, Dickey Betts, Tony Joe White, Charlie Daniels, Jerry Reed, and dozens more.

    Roy has been teaching at the university level for thirty years. Since 1983, he has held the bass professor chair at prestigious Belmont University (Nashville, TN), one of the very few schools to offer a commercial music degree program designed to turn students into professional musicians working at the top of the industry. Roy's students have toured and recorded with such notable stars as Trisha Yearwood, Faith Hill, Little Texas, Michael W. Smith, Lady Antebellum, Chick Corea, Sir Tom Jones, Blood Sweat and Tears, Yanni, and countless other music icons.

    This is where your story begins.

    Visit the Teach Me Bass Guitar info page for everything you need to know about the new formats! And visit the **Ordering Page to see all the available options for purchase.

    **Special rates apply for those who already own the DVD set of TMBG. Read on...

    If you already own the DVD package of Roy Vogt's Teach Me Bass Guitar, you can purchase the digital version for the low price of $34.95. This price includes the entire 20 lesson kit, and - as with the DVD kit - you only pay ONCE. No subscriptions, no monthly fees.

    If you purchased your kit from the TMBG website, check your email for the special price offer from The Learning Dock. You will receive instructions on how to get your digital kit for this special price. Once you make your purchase, you will then get a receipt for your purchase and a second email with instructions on how to stream or download your lessons. Just choose your operating system and download the appropriate Platform Purple Player. Once downloaded, open the player and enter your email address and the account code password as given in the confirmation email. The lessons will then appear, and will be available to stream, download one at a time, or download all at once.

    IMPORTANT: if you purchased your TMBG kit through Amazon, you must contact Barbara directly, since Amazon does not send us the emails of those who have purchased TMBG. Email Barbara@thelearningdock.com or call 615-945-6935 for information on how to get your discount code.

    If you have any questions feel free to ask right here, or drop us an email. Barbara@thelearningdock.com or Elmeaux@thelearningdock.com or David@thelearningdock.com.

      I am interested in the upgrade. I hope an email goes out to the existing DVD owners to let them know when the discount pricing is in effect.

      The folks are working on it. The announcement will be out shortly. If you bought your DVD kit on Amazon, contact Barbara directly. Barbara@thelearningdock.com.

      They have started sending out the discount info to TMBG members who purchased their kits from the TMBG website. Check your mailboxes for info. If it hasn't come yet, stand by - they're hoping to get it out today.
