Why Donate?

If I’m helping you become a better bass player, or you’re enjoying some of my writing, then I’m a happy guy. For over a year my lesson site over at Chris Tarry Lessons was membership-only, and we had a thriving community of like-minded bassists that studied with me through the use of the videos and virtual one-on-one mentorship. Unfortunately, touring, writing books, a growing family, and other time constraints made it difficult for me to continue the commitment, so I decided to throw open the doors and make the site completely free.

And you can continue to use it (and of course this site) for free, the information is here for you to enjoy, to help you become the best bass player you can be.


If you make a donation of $20 or more, I’ll send you a link to download every one of my award-winning solo albums (nine albums in total), the sheet music to virtually every song on every album, and I’ll include an additional fifteen albums I’ve played on, some of which have never been released (this includes every Metalwood album.) That’s a total of 24 albums with accompanying sheet music for less than $1 per album.

Your donation will go a long way to keeping Chris Tarry Lessons (and my other sites) totally free. It will also help me continue to create music, fill the Family Truckster with gas, and even buy a few boxes of diapers. Seriously, you can rest-assured that you’re contributing directly to supporting me, the artist, and the free bass resources that I’ve made available.

Thanks everyone, and keep on gettin’ better.
