Présentation de l'éditeur

Music Theory for the Bass Player is a comprehensive and immediately applicable guide to making you a well-grounded groover, informed bandmate and all-around more creative musician. Included with this book are 89 videos available via scanning the QR code on the cover or by visiting the author's blog. Have you always wanted to learn music theory but felt it was too overwhelming a task? Perhaps all the books seem to be geared toward pianists or classical players? Do you know lots of songs, but don’t know how the chords are put together or how they work with the melody? If so, this is the book for you!   Starting with intervals as music’s basic building blocks, you will explore scales and their modes, chords and the basics of harmony. Packed with fretboard diagrams, musical examples and exercises, more than 180 pages of vital information are peppered with mind-bending quizzes, effective mnemonics, and compelling learning approaches. Extensive and detailed photo demonstrations show why relaxed posture and optimized fingering are vital for good tone, timing and chops. You can even work your way through the book without being able to read music (reading music is of course a vital skill, yet, the author believes it should not be tackled at the same time as the study of music theory, as they are different skills with a different practicing requirement. Reading becomes much easier once theory is mastered and learning theory on the fretboard using diagrams and patterns as illustrations, music theory is very accessible, immediately usable and fun. This is the definitive resource for the enthusiastic bassist! This book and the 89 free videos stand on their own and form a thorough source for studying music theory for the bass player. If you'd like to take it a step further, the author also offers a corresponding 20 week course; this online course works with the materials in this book and practices music theory application in grooves, fills and solos. Information is on the author's blog.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must have! 1 octobre 2015
Par Rosalie Woods - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Excellent book! I’ve bought lots of books and DVDs but this is the ONE to have! The chapters are arranged logically as is the information inside the chapters. Information is clearly presented. Exercises are well designed and followed by quizzes.

It starts with the notes, then the fret board, and next each interval in detail. You should use the book with your bass so you hear the exercises as you practice. It included mnemonic devices. There is a chapter on posture so you can position yourself and play in a relaxed manner not cramped up.

Ariane plans to offer a free practice syllabus at

You can know theory in your brain but better to know it in your fingers and know it so well you can use it in musical situations.

Highly recommended!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great is all i can say!! 24 juillet 2016
Par Jeremiah Waldo - Publié sur

I've been a bass player for 26 years. I've always just followed the root notes and played what I thought sounded good with the songs my bands have written. After reading this book, following the exercises, and then watching Ariane's Pentatonic Playground video, I feel like I've got a whole new understanding of the bass. I've read several books, and watched numerous instructional videos, and Ariane's teachings have been the best. Easy to follow and understand. I wish I had this book 26 years ago. If your a bass player, buy this book. You won't regret it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Play Bass? Order This Book. 1 février 2016
Par Jeff Jay - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I'm getting back into playing bass guitar after a 22 year hiatus. I purchased quite a few books to help me get back into it. This one's hands down the best. After just going through the first few lessons, I've garnered a better understanding of theory and fretboard layout than I did when I was playing in cover bands as a kid. Also, she supports the book on her blog with video lessons. She's not only a talented bassist, but a great educator and teacher as well. Her enthusiasm about the subject is very contagious.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Cutting a Clear and Easy to Follow Path Toward Fretboard Mastery! 26 octobre 2015
Par Dave - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is one great book! If you are serious about learning bass, even as a hobbyist bassist like me, this a a wonderful book to not only educate your brain, but to educate your hands as well. The book is logically laid out with narrative, exercises, practice suggestions and tests that help you move step by step through mastering your fret board.

I can't say enough great things about this book! The test questions are often brain teasers designed to make you think about the information you just covered. And you have to THINK and not just parrot what was on the previous few pages.

If you are willing to make a reasonable effort to follow this book you will end up a much better bassist and musician.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Extraordinarily helpful book 30 mars 2016
Par Kevin A. Clasing - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a very interesting instruction book, as it seem to me that it could be read with great value for someone who had literally just picked up a bass, and someone who had been playing for decades could also find useful information in it. I have been playing bass for a very long time and find many helpful things in every chapter.

As you can tell by the title, theory is the predominant issue here, but there is always a relation of theory to the fretboard. This is no abstract music handbook, but rather is meant to be read with your bass in hand. Speaking of hands, there is a fantastic chapter on ergonomics and care of your body as a bass player.

You hear this kind of thing all the time, but unless you're Tony Levin, you'll definitely get something out of this. It is a genuine must-read book if you're a bass player, or wish to become one.
