Music theory has all too often been made into an Confusing, over complicated, academic study which has little relevance to helping you become a Better bass guitar Player. 

But studying it WILL be a game changer for your bass playing...

I've been paying my mortgage as a professional bass player here in the UK for the past 15 years and I've learned a ton of music theory in my time.

1000s of gigs later, I now have total clarity on what music theory matters for us bass players... and what's a waste of time.

For us bass players there are simple 'core concepts' we need to learn. The rest can go in the trash can.

This subject is so hot... time and time again I have asked if I can I deep dive into all this good stuff?

Yes! That's why I've created 'The Ultimate Music Theory Boot Camp'
