  1. Hey Mike Watt:

    I'd like to thank you for spending your time answering all these questions... a totally cool public service for bass people.

    Have you studied much music theory? Any recommendations on which areas you found most helpful? Chord theory? Scales? Modes? Rhythm patterns?

    Have you learned to read music? Do you think it helps or hinders you in any way? What about tab?

    thanks for any "nuts-and-bolts" sort of advice you can pass on,

    David P
