    The new music theory for bass lesson's up and running if anyone's interested. It's not really theory in the same way as the previous lessons. It's a lesson in building bass chords (just major for now) and how the primary chords in a major key interact. Next time I'll cover the rest of the triads and probably go a bit deeper into voice leading.

    Hopefully it's a bit more concise and comprehensive in the chord building side of things than a lot of the starter bass chord lessons on Youtube.

    On the subject of these lessons, I've now planned out a series of about 20 improvisation lessons following up on that Getting Started one I just did. The Music Theory series is currently planned up to about 30/35 lessons. I've got about 3 or 4 slap lessons to finish and a 10 part series on Walking Bass planned. So I'm hoping for it to be pretty structured. Also planning out a load of lessons devoted to standard bassline fundamentals which will probably be the most usable!

    Sounds like it'll be a rather comprehensive approach. I really like your work man, thanks for treating us so nice :)

    Enjoyed your lessons so far. And I'm still working through them. Looking forward to the new ones!
