ok, ive been playing bass for about 1 1/2 years, all fingertyle, i was unable to play with a pick. i bought a strat copy and was forced to learn how to handle a pick and am having some good success now. everything seems to be moving right along, but my lack of musical knowlage or theory is starting to get the best of me. i just find it so dry and i never feel like im making progress when i study. so has anybody have some unique ways to learn theory slowly and have fun at the same time? if you've read this and said to yourself. "what a dumbass" your more than likely right, however if you have some helpful drills or study materials that im unaware of please pass them along. im old and stupid so bear with me.
