Hey there, I'm a new bassist (been playing for about a week) and I've decided that I want to learn musical theory, so that later on I can become a good bassist with an advanced/well practiced technique. I can read music, as I learnt it when I played Tuba in my school orchestra, but I wasn't taught any musical theory apart from the rather simplistic "Minor Keys sound sad and Major Keys sound happy" (GCSE Music). The most I understand is the idea of a Root, 3rd and 5th, but only because I can 'see' them stacked on the staff forming a triad. I tried reading through Pacman's Surefire Scale Method, but I became disheartened when I realised that I didn't understand most of it. Sorry for rambling on, but I'm really confused as to where I should start/what I should do. Any suggestions/advice greatly appreciated.
