Welcome to my Bass tutorial website. If you are new here, then please check out the ‘Lesson tree’. This is an order of practice, starting at beginners level, and slowly raising.

Also take time to check out all the other free Bass lessons and content that is on this site! – Kris


I’ve sampled many online bass lessons over the past year or so. Paid a lot of money but didn’t learn much. But your lessons are a breath of fresh air. Most sites and teachers are dull, over complicated and in some cases-self-important. You have managed to simplify the jargon, to a point where literally anyone can understand and have fun when learning this instrument. But also, behind that laid back, almost jokey exterior is one hell of creative and innovative bass player. In a way it’s a shame that you don’t flaunt and show yourself off like many famous musicians, because if you did, you’d be one of the best. You’re an inspiration. Thankyou for everything, and god bless you – Tom, USA.

Free Sociology Notes, Sociology Definition, Sociology Study Guide, Meaning Scope Of Sociology, Define Sociology Theory,


Sociology Guide is a Sociology study guide, very much like an online Sociology Course.

Free Sociology Notes
We start with the Definition of Sociology and continue with Sociology Theory. Our notes on Sociology are not only an introduction to Sociology, but also an indepth study of Sociology and Sociological Concepts.

Introduction To Sociology
Sociology is a social science that studies society and the individual in perspective of Society. The origins of Sociology lie in the 19th century but the during the 1960-70s, it became a major social science subject, taught in universities and colleges, and schools. The scope of sociology has only become more scientific with time.

Sociology Definition
“Sociology is the study of human social life, groups and societies. It is a dazzling and compelling enterprise, having as its subject matter our own behaviour as social beings. The scope of sociology is extremely wide, ranging from the analysis of passing encounters between individuals in the street up to the investigation of world-wide social processes”. Anthony Giddens (“Sociology”, 1989).

Qualitative analysis of interview data: A step-by-step guide

Опубликовано: 19 мая 2013 г.

The content applies to qualitative data analysis in general. Do not forget to share this Youtube link with your friends.

The steps are also described in writing below (Click Show more):

STEP 1, reading the transcripts
1.1. Browse through all transcripts, as a whole.
1.2. Make notes about your impressions.
1.3. Read the transcripts again, one by one.
1.4. Read very carefully, line by line.

STEP 2, labeling relevant pieces
2.1. Label relevant words, phrases, sentences, or sections.
2.2. Labels can be about actions, activities, concepts, differences, opinions, processes, or whatever you think is relevant.
2.3. You might decide that something is relevant to code because:
*it is repeated in several places;
*it surprises you;
*the interviewee explicitly states that it is important;
*you have read about something similar in reports, e.g. scientific articles;
*it reminds you of a theory or a concept;
*or for some other reason that you think is relevant.

You can use preconceived theories and concepts, be open-minded, aim for a description of things that are superficial, or aim for a conceptualization of underlying patterns. It is all up to you.

It is your study and your choice of methodology. You are the interpreter and these phenomena are highlighted because you consider them important. Just make sure that you tell your reader about your methodology, under the heading Method. Be unbiased, stay close to the data, i.e. the transcripts, and do not hesitate to code plenty of phenomena. You can have lots of codes, even hundreds.

STEP 3, decide which codes are the most important, and create categories by bringing several codes together
3.1. Go through all the codes created in the previous step. Read them, with a pen in your hand.
3.2. You can create new codes by combining two or more codes.
3.3. You do not have to use all the codes that you created in the previous step.
3.4. In fact, many of these initial codes can now be dropped.
3.5. Keep the codes that you think are important and group them together in the way you want.
3.6. Create categories. (You can call them themes if you want.)
3.7. The categories do not have to be of the same type. They can be about objects, processes, differences, or whatever.
3.8. Be unbiased, creative and open-minded.
3.9. Your work now, compared to the previous steps, is on a more general, abstract level.
3.10. You are conceptualizing your data.

STEP 4, label categories and decide which are the most relevant and how they are connected to each other
4.1. Label the categories. Here are some examples:

Adaptation (Category)
Updating rulebook (sub-category)
Changing schedule (sub-category)
New routines (sub-category)

Seeking information (Category)
Talking to colleagues (sub-category)
Reading journals (sub-category)
Attending meetings (sub-category)

Problem solving (Category)
Locate and fix problems fast (sub-category)
Quick alarm systems (sub-category)

4.2. Describe the connections between them.
4.3. The categories and the connections are the main result of your study. It is new knowledge about the world, from the perspective of the participants in your study.

STEP 5, some options
5.1. Decide if there is a hierarchy among the categories.
5.2. Decide if one category is more important than the other.
5.3. Draw a figure to summarize your results.

STEP 6, write up your results
6.1. Under the heading Results, describe the categories and how they are connected. Use a neutral voice, and do not interpret your results.
6.2. Under the heading Discussion, write out your interpretations and discuss your results. Interpret the results in light of, for example:
*results from similar, previous studies published in relevant scientific journals;
*theories or concepts from your field;
*other relevant aspects.

STEP 7 Ending remark
This tutorial showed how to focus on segments in the transcripts and how to put codes together and create categories. However, it is important to remember that it is also OK not to divide the data into segments. Narrative analysis of interview transcripts, for example, does not rely on the fragmentation of the interview data. (Narrative analysis is not discussed in this tutorial.)

Further, I have assumed that your task is to make sense of a lot of unstructured data, i.e. that you have qualitative data in the form of interview transcripts. However, remember that most of the things I have said in this tutorial are basic, and also apply to qualitative analysis in general. You can use the steps described in this tutorial to analyze:
*notes from participatory observations;
*web pages;
*or other types of qualitative data.

STEP 8 Suggested reading
Alan Bryman’s book: ‘Social Research Methods’ published by Oxford University Press.

Steinar Kvale’s and Svend Brinkmann’s book ‘InterViews: Learning the Craft of Qualitative Research Interviewing’ published by SAGE.

Good luck with your study.
