Hi all. I've been playing bass for a couple of years (casually) and recently have been trying to learn to read music and bass theory etc, but I'm feeling overwhelmed by the sheer amount of stuff to learn and I don't know where to start. I've tried reading up on it online but it doesn't sink in and I started taking lessons with a guy who isn't really that great a teacher (so I'm looking for a new one). My problem is I can't just sit down and read about it, I need to have it set out like a course with someone to guide me, as if I'm in school. Aside from get a new teacher, has anyone got any tips on how to learn as much as I can? Or maybe some reccomendations for CD+book learning sets or whatever. Any help is much appreciated. P.S. I'm basically a complete beginner. I know some very vague things about music but that's all really.
