TERMS OF SERVICE
Welcome to arisbassblog.com (the “Site”), which is comprised of various web pages owned and operated by CapCat Music Media, INC (“INC”), a Tennessee corporation engaged in the business of providing awesome products and services to its valued customers.
We offer the Site, including all information, tools, and services to you, the user, conditioned upon your acceptance of all the terms, conditions, policies, and notices (“Terms”) because, frankly, our lawyer insists.
By visiting the Site you agree to be bound by the Terms, including those referenced and/or available via hyperlink. The Terms apply to all Site users, including without limitation browsers, vendors, customers, merchants, and/ or contributors of content so please read them carefully. You may even want to go ahead and bookmark this page right now—it’s okay, we’ll wait!
The Site provides bass education videos, audio, PDFs, diagrams, discussions, interviews, articles, and other resources for educational purposes, and a forum for folks to talk about it all. We’re total musos and we think it’s rad you might be, too.
By agreeing to these Terms, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state or province of residence, or that you are the age of majority in your state or province of residence and you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependents to use the Site.
Visiting the Site or sending emails to INC constitutes electronic communications. You consent to receive electronic communications and you agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically, via email and on the Site, satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
If you use the Site, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. You may not assign or otherwise transfer your account to any other person or entity. You acknowledge that INC is not responsible for third party access to your account even that which results from theft or misappropriation of your account. INC and its agents reserve the right to refuse or cancel service, terminate accounts, or remove or edit content in our sole discretion.
Courses and Memberships:
Our courses offer lifetime access. (Lifetime specifically means INC’s lifetime not yours, silly.) Note that if a course is purchased using an installment plan, all installments must be paid off to enjoy lifetime access.
If installment plans are cancelled before the full amount has been paid, previous payments are nonrefundable and access will be terminated. If the customer wishes to purchase the course again, previous payments will be applied.
The credit card used in the student account must remain current in order to assure uninterrupted access. Credit card information can be updated from the student account at any time.
INC offers a 15-day money-back guarantee for all courses and sometimes, even longer, depending on the course (“Guarantee Period”). The applicable Guarantee Period will be stated on the course’s respective landing page and it begins with the date of purchase, not when you first log in or access the course.
That being said, we are really nice and if you are nice to us, too, we don’t make a fuss if you are a few days past the window – it’s at our discretion, though!
To claim a refund email us within the Guarantee Period using the same email address you used when purchasing.
If an installment plan was used to purchase the course, you will be refunded the paid amount and any further installment payments will be cancelled.
Our memberships have a 2-week trial starting on the initial date of purchase (“Trial Period”) . To claim a refund, email us within the Trial Period to receive a full refund. To cancel your subscription after Trial Period, go to your Account and cancel your subscription under “billing”. You will have access until the end of the current payment period after which no more payments will be incurred and your access will end.
If you enjoy the benefits of a discounted membership promotion or our original founding membership promotion, you must remain an uninterrupted member in good standing to keep enjoying these benefits. Interruptions due to nonpayment will result in forfeiting your promotional benefits.
Members enjoy discounts on live classes such as 10 Week Practice Groups, (also called 10 Week Intensives) as well as courses as announced on the Membership Landing page.
In order to enjoy the full benefit of these discounts, members must stay a member until the Ten Week event has concluded or, in case of courses with Installment Plans, until all installments have been paid in full.
If the membership is cancelled before the above mentioned time, the student will be billed for the difference in order to remain active in these classes/have continued access to the course. Membership payments already made up to that point will be honored in this calculation.
If the membership is cancelled within the Trial Period, the full course fee or the full tuition for the Ten Week Intensives is immediately due in order to remain active in the classes/have continued access to the course.
Coupon codes will be made available to members after signup so they can enjoy these discounts when enrolling in a course or Practice Group/Intensive. What can we say? We love our members!
Ten-Week Intensives, Practice Groups, Mentorship Pods, One-on-One Lessons, Cohorts:
These products have a very limited amount of seats and do not offer a money-back guarantee.
Mentorship Pods as part of our Mentorship Membership may require a six month commitment and prepay for six or twelve months. This will be specified when a pod starts. These pods are very small and we only approve students we know very well and who know Ari’s teaching very well (a minimum of three months’ of Deep Dive membership is required and admittance to a pod is at Ari’s discretion).
Pods rely on the students staying together as a group. If a prepayment was made there are no refunds even if the student unexpectedly drops out.
Unused one-on-one lessons expire after one year.
Recorded Live Events
We record all of our live events. If you attend such an event (Ask Ari featuring Wolf, Ari’s Practice Groups, Cohort PrepGroups, 10-Week Intensives etc.), your name, likeness (audio and/or video), and/or participation may become part of the event recording so be sure you like how your hair looks that day. Of course, if you’d like to remain anonymous, please use a screen name that does not identify you and put only your arms and bass into your shot. By attending any of our events, you are granting INC and its agents a nonexclusive, irrevocable license to:
(a) Include you and your participation in the recording; and
(b) Use, reproduce, publish, republish, exhibit, edit, modify, or distribute, in whole or in part, these recordings in all media without compensation for any purpose, including promotional or advertising efforts.
Note that these recordings may appear in a variety of formats and media on the Site available now or in the future (e.g. print publications, video tapes, courses, membership sites, CD-ROM, Internet, mobile, digital).
By using the Site and its services, including attending or participating in live events, you release INC and it’s agents from liability, claims, and demands for any violation of any personal or proprietary right you may have in connection with such use, including any and all claims for libel, defamation, or invasion of privacy. You also understand that all such recordings, in whatever medium, shall remain INC’s property. I have read and fully understand the terms of this release.
Price Increases; Promotions
We reserve the right to periodically raise our prices; however, your current membership rates or installment plans will remain unaffected by such changes. We also reserve the right to periodically run promotions; however, these do not apply to previous payments or purchases.
Third Party Sites, Services, and Accounts

The Linked Sites are not under the control of INC and INC is not responsible for the contents of any Linked Site, including without limitation any link contained in a Linked Site, or any changes or updates to a Linked Site.

You are solely responsible for any Submissions you make and their accuracy. We take no responsibility and assume no liability for any Submissions posted by you or any third party.
INC and the Site are based in the United States (“U.S.”). We make no representation that any aspect of the Site or any product or service procured using the Site is appropriate or available for use outside of the U.S. As such, if you access the Site from outside the U.S., you are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws and you agree that you will not use the Site or any INC property in any manner prohibited by any applicable laws, restrictions, or regulations.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless INC, its officers, directors, employees, agents and third parties, for any losses, costs, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) relating to or arising out of your use of or inability to use the Site or services, any user postings made by you, your violation of any terms of this Agreement or your violation of any rights of a third party, or your violation of any applicable laws, rules or regulations. INC reserves the right, at its own cost, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will fully cooperate with INC in asserting any available defenses. INC is not providing health services or health related advice. All advice is given for educational purposes only.
Liability, Disclaimer, and other Boring Things
Although INC strives to keep customers happy, we are not responsible if information made available on the Site is not accurate, complete, or current. The material on this Site is provided for general information and educational purposes only and should not be relied upon or used as the sole basis for making decisions without consulting primary, more accurate, more complete or more timely sources of information. Any reliance on the material on this site is at your own risk. And much to our mother’s dismay, we are not lawyers or doctors so we cannot provide legal or medical advice.
INC does not guarantee, represent or warrant that your use of the Site will be uninterrupted, timely, secure or error-free. Further, INC does not warrant that the results that may be obtained from the use of the Site will be accurate or reliable. If we had that kind of power, we’d be a genie.
You agree that from time to time we may remove content or shut down the Site and/or its services for indefinite periods without notice to you. You expressly agree that your use of, or inability to use, the Site is at your sole risk. The Site and all products and services delivered to you through it are provided ‘as is’ and ‘as available’ for your use, without any representation, warranties or conditions of any kind, either express or implied, including all implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, merchantable quality, fitness for a particular purpose, durability, title, and non-infringement.
In no case shall INC, our directors, officers, shareholders, affiliates, agents, contractors, interns, suppliers, service providers or licensors be liable for any injury, loss, claim, or any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or consequential damages of any kind, including, without limitation lost profits, lost revenue, lost savings, loss of data, replacement costs, or any similar damages, whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, arising from your use of any of our website or any products or services procured using our website, or for any other claim related in any way to your use of our website or any product or service procured using our website, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of the service or any content (or product) posted, transmitted, or otherwise made available via the service, even if advised of their possibility. Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
IN NO EVENT SHALL INC’s AGGREGATE LIABILITY EXCEED THE AMOUNTS ACTUALLY PAID BY AND/OR DUE FROM YOU IN THE SIX (6) MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO SUCH CLAIM. IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY AND/OR ITS LICENSORS BE LIABLE TO ANYONE FOR ANY INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DAMAGES OF ANY TYPE OR KIND (INCLUDING LOSS OF DATA, REVENUE, PROFITS, USE OR OTHER ECONOMIC ADVANTAGE) ARISING OUT OF, OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THIS WEBSITE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE, OR FOR ANY CONTENT OBTAINED FROM OR THROUGH THE SITE, ANY INTERRUPTION, INACCURACY, ERROR OR OMISSION, REGARDLESS OF CAUSE IN THE CONTENT, EVEN IF THE PARTY FROM WHICH DAMAGES ARE BEING SOUGHT OR SUCH PARTY’S LICENSORS HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
Jurisdiction and Relationship
To the maximum extent permitted by law, this agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Tennessee and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of courts in Tennessee in all disputes arising out of or relating to the use of the Site. Use of the Site is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these Terms, including, without limitation, this section.
Although we really like you, we don’t want that kind of relationship: As such, you agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and INC as a result of this agreement or use of the Site. INC’s performance of this agreement is subject to existing laws and legal process, and nothing contained in this agreement is in derogation of INC’s right to comply with governmental, court, and law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of the Site or information provided to or gathered by INC with respect to such use.
If any part of this agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the agreement shall continue in effect.
Unless otherwise specified herein, this agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you, the user, and INC with respect to the Site and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written.
Changes to Terms
Any new features or tools which are added to the Site shall also be subject to the Terms, the most current version of which are available at any time on this page.
Inc. reserves the right to update, change, or replace any or all of these Terms by posting the same on the Site and it’s your responsibility to check this page periodically because your continued use of or access to the Site following such new stuff constitutes acceptance of it.
While we try to be kind and understanding, we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time. Additionally, INC reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your access to the Site and the related services or any portion thereof at any time, without notice, for breaching these Terms or for bad behavior generally such as posting inappropriate materials, using hate speech, or trolling.
INC welcomes your questions or comments regarding the Terms:
