So, been away for some time as we have had quite the time lately. Last week we had a fire at our house. Gas grill literally blew up in my face and wood panels on the balcony caught fire and it spread all the way to the roof. Everyone, missus, kid, dog and cats are fine. I got a few burns on my face and my arms. My beard lost a few centimeters as well.

Now, what I’d like are some recommendations for some magazines to order, anything bass related, some book recommendations for music theory as we are not allowed to really enter our house and grab books as they were really in the smoke. Bass and amp was in another part of the house that remained untouched. I would really like to start learning music theory as I need something to occupy my mind. Just reading regular books won’t cut it. I’m still having a few panic attacks but it’s getting better.

Wow @Nebel this is horrible!
SO happy you are OK though.

Ari Capp 's Bass Theory is good, as is the very basic “Dummies” Series, with is general theory but theory is theory.

Sorry to hear, but glad everyone is ok. In addition to Ari’s book, Edly’s Music Theory for Practical People is good too, but it isn’t bass-centric

Ugh, that looks… awful! Glad you are all OK!

How… how did that happen?? (I own a gas grill as well) :grimacing:

If you want something a bit interactive, try the BeatoBook (by Rick Beato):
https://learn.beatobook.com/ (general music theory, and then also quite some guitar-related stuff).
(Not all people here like him… but I, on the other hand, am not too fond of Ari Cap’s style. You need to find a teacher or a teaching guide that “fits” you…)

Thanks guys, I’ll look into it and get some books ordered. @joergkutter insurance guy said most likely a malfunction, I’ve used the grill (brand is, well, was really, Ender) and said that these things are not unheard off. Maybe the regulator malfunctioned or something. Regardless he said not to worry about the insurance as they will cover it.

Thanks Eric, I’m currently wading through debris and what used to part of my cd collection, seeing what can be salvaged.

Wow @Nebel, that’s really terrible! Let us know if there are certain CDs that you miss in particular… I myself still have plenty of CDs lying around that I never play anymore, and I’d be happy to send you any that you would like.

Much appreciated Mike. It’s just a clusterfuck at the moment. I’m moving things about and going from “this is going well, you are doing good” to “fucking hell, what’s the point in saving one item in a sea of charred memories?”.
