Here's what you will learn...

The course is split up into eight modules each containing lessons.

  1. Introduction: A gentle welcome to the world of theory and how it will change your life
  2. Foundations: Learn the first elements of theory you need to then go onto the more advanced stuff
  3. Scales & Modes: All scales (and arpeggios) you need to make music from the humble pentatonic to modes of the major, and harmonic and melodic minor scales.
  4. Harmony: Learn to play over any chord progression as well as how to write your own.
  5. Rhythm: The core of bass playing! Learn to read and study rhythms in order to groove and play deep in the pocket.
  6. Melody: The key to memorable bass lines.
  7. Ear Training: This skill will make you feel superhuman as you identify bass lines with ease and learn to jam on the spot.
  8. Putting Music Theory Into Practice: Learn actually how to use music theory in a variety of real world situations from jamming in different styles to composing.

P.S. You also get to email me any questions you have - I'll answer them personally.

Music theory can be confusing! This course leads you step by step from the absolute basics, through to advanced ideas like modes. I will show you how to use this stuff. Music theory changed my life as a professional bass player and I want that for you too.

Who is this course for?

You’re a good fit for this course if:

  • Music theory hurts your brain
  • You want to be more creative
  • You want to play in different styles and write music
  • You want to improve your overall musicianship - rhythm, chords, triads etc. etc. It's all in the course.
  • You’re willing to put the work in (Sorry, there’s no magic formula)

Course Format & Materials

I get straight to the point in my teaching and don't show you anything that a professional bass player wouldn't use. There's zero fluff here! You will be able to use everything you learn in this course. There are examples, bass lines, backing tracks, and assignments throughout.

Workbook (TAB/notation)

The accompanying 169 page PDF contains all the examples and explanations from the course.

Backing Tracks

Included are over 100 backing tracks to anchor a theory idea to real music. There are also a bunch of drum beats and metronome exercises to improve your timing.

Fretboard Diagrams

Wherever I explain a scale, mode, triad, or arpeggio, I give you a handy diagram to memorise the shape. You can move these to and key or root so you will learn in every key.
