  1. Hi. This is my first post, so please dont make any sudden movements.

    I've just discovered that there are actually some decent web bass resources out there, like these forums and http://www.activebass.com, and i was hoping someone could throw some other links at me. Specifically i'm interested in resources on theory which will help put everything in a practical, musical context for me, and also anything which relates to composition, riff-writing, etc ... recommended (paper) reading would also be well-received. And if you've got a favourite book or website that's a little off-topic, feel free to list it here too. Thanks :)

    I would recommend any lessons by Jeff Berlin. He always is able to see many different viewpoints, is very patient, and likes to use a metronome to make sure the timing is always spot on.

    Check out Mark Smith's Youtube channel talkingbass and Chris Tarry's website christarrylessons.com
  4. Go to post #6 on this string for a general overview of how music composers think. How to get started?

    Then go back and start with post # 1. That may answer most of your questions.

    Good luck.

    If you play piano and are interested in Jazz, Mark Levine's "Jazz Theory" uses lots of musical quotes from famous jazz songs as examples for the theory he discusses.
