Hey all, Im going into my second year of university, and they have this applied music program where you actually get lessons in your instrument (mines the bass, isnt that surprising). Now, to register for the class, you need to pass an audition. I definetly have the skills, I have no doubt about that. But theory wise, I'm stupid. I didn't take music at all in highschool. Basically, I know a few scales, and I'm OK with intervals. I can identify what notes are what pretty quickly too (on the lower half of the fretboard, anyway). ANYWAY, ive found out that I should learn jazz for the audition and the class. I know nothing about jazz., other than the fact that it seems complicated. SO, I was hoping you guys could tell me the basics (common jazz chord proggressions, etc) and perhaps show me some sites that would help me out. Or maybe recommend a good book for jazz bass. Thanks a lot!
