    I've been playing bass for less than two years. I've taught many songs from hearing them, but I can't jam! Where would you suggest I go to learn theory? Any particularly good books on the subject?

    Do a thread search. Hopefully you will you find your answer there.

  5. Learning theory is no guarantee that you'll be able to jam. If you want to learn to jam, find some guys that'll let you hang and jam with them. In other words, the way you learn to jam is by jamming. Learning theory is important and I'm not discouraging that in any way but I know plenty of people that know theory but can't jam.
