The CORE Method

Bass Lessons by Michael Dimin

Welcome to the home of the most innovative and comprehensive on-line, video bass instruction site on the internet, The Core Method Bass Lessons. While there are many great methods out there and many great teachers, It’s rare that these two come together in a method that works for all bass players, at all levels, playing any style of music. The CORE Method is a revolutionary method designed for 4,5 and 6 string basses (and more). Because it is modular in nature, you get to direct your own learning. Learning that suits your needs and your interests.

“I would suggest Mike Dimin’s CORE Method. It really is the most comprehensive approach to unlocking the fretboard I’ve ever heard of. He is a phenomenal teacher and his method has completely changed what I can do with the bass.” – Joe T.


The CORE Method is for all bass players, beginner through advanced. While providing a solid foundation for the new player, the innovative concepts presented open up the instrument for intermediate and advanced players alike. Whatever style of music you play, The Core Method will help you become a more creative, innovative and, most importantly, in-demand player.

“We’ll definitely have you back at a future BBC. You are an awesome educator!” – Gerald Veasley, Gerald Veasley’s Bass BootCamp, Joe Zawinul

Clicking on a lesson will send you to the Soundslice website where you can sign up for a free Soundslice account.

A one-time payment provides lifetime access to that series of lessons, even if additional lessons are added in the future.
