    Over the next year, i will be touring w/ a convention group, and also attempting at furthering myself in the bass guitar in the theory area. My current knowledge is that of bassic theory i learned in the first half of a music theory class at school. I can slowly read a bass cleff, but not sight read a piece of music. Whats a good way to manage learning this w/o the stability of a private teacher? Thanks!

    Get youself a few books to take on the road with you. Some of the Musicians Institute books are great. Then discipline yourself for perhaps 30 minutes a day work on theory. Check out, they have great books (including mine), that are placed in categories based on your interest.

    You cn learn theory on your own, its all about making sure you do that 30 minutes a day.
