Essential Music Theory for Electric Bass
This book is designed to help guidea beginning music theory dialogue between instructor and student in private one-on-one lessons. Six areas of beginning music theory are covered. The major scale, the natural minor scale, intervals, triads, seventh chords and harmonizedmajor and minor scales. Fingerings, intervallic structures and note names are also diagrammed in each chapter.
It is highly recommended that this book is used in the course of study with a professional bass instructor, though many players have found the book to be useful in self-study. A good bass teacherwill help explain and demonstrate theory concepts in a live setting and also shed additional light in terms of alternate fingerings, ear training and gainingfull technical mastery of theory concepts across the entire fingerboard.
