As bass players we play accompaniment to songs and so it is essential that we understand songs, song structure, chord function, chord progressions and how chord progressions relate to melody and to basslines. Bass Theory provides an introduction to song structure as well as the basic elements of music theory, including: the layout of the bass fretboard; the structure of scales; the major, minor, pentatonic and other scales; keys; intervals; chord tones; major and minor chord structure; the Circle of Fifths; modes - and much, much more! Designed with those who do not read music in mind, Bass Theory covers everything you need to know to apply music theory to the electric bass guitar.

With a lifetime of experience as a bassist and music educator, Tony Muhammad draws on his deep knowledge of music theory and life lessons from his own multi-dimensional involvement in the music industry, as well as from some of the country's best bassists. He offers knowledge and important insights that new or experienced bassists can use to deepen their understanding of playing bass and to become valuable and sought-after musicians.
