If you can pronounce the word "coffee", do so without the "ee" on the end and you'll have the correct pronunciation of "cough". Also, be careful with "bass" - sometimes it's pronounced the way you said it here (when you're talking about a type of fish), but usually it's pronounced the same as the word "base" (rhymes with place, face, trace, etc).
