Why you should learn music theory…

After one year of solid writing (and thirty years of thinking about and studying and using this stuff!), my course Music Theory For Bass Players is now out.

In this lesson, I'm going to show you a few ways in which upping your music theory game can dramatically improve your bass playing as well as overall musicality.

Here's what we'll look at:

  1. Finding the key and what notes fit
  2. Improving your rhythm and groove (swing 1/16th demo)
  3. Gaining loads of confidence through knowledge
  4. Unlocking new styles (flamenco demo)
  5. New creative superpowers! (chord/scale relationships)
  6. Analysing Bass Lines (What's Going On - Marvin Gaye, played by James Jamerson)
  7. Using Music Theory To CREATE (playing different styles on bass)
  8. Tritone Substitution (a common jazz progression)

Music theory changed my life and I want that for you too. Check out Music Theory For Bass Players (scroll down and you'll see the entire content list of the course).
