BOOK INTRODUCTION
Music Theory for Bassists is a resource for those interested in expanding their knowledge of the vocabulary and grammar of music. As a bassist, I have noticed through performing, composing, and teaching that seeing and hearing things 'from the Bottom-up' offers certain advantages: distinguishing chord changes, locking in with the drummer, and providing support for ,melody, to name but a few. Bass, either electric or acoustic, plays a pivotal role in any ensemble: bass supports and influences, the harmony, provides a rhythmic motor, can share melodic duties, and has a vast sonic palette. Music theory then becomes an especially powerful tool for a bassist, preparing you for professional opportunities and deepening your personal apprecia©tion of music.

This book serves as a bridge between your experience as a bass player (beginner and pro alike) and the world of musicians who speak this common language; it's a kind of code book that translates your private language into the common tongue.
