Recommended Books on Music Theory?

Just finished the course. Loved every minute of it. Still not at the bad ass level, but I am beyond beginner. Definitely some areas I need to go back to refresh and practice. Thanks for putting this together and sharing your love and knowledge of the bass. Do you recommend any books on music theory? I would like to dig deeper. I am excited for my musical future. Rock on!


The most popular book here seems to be Ari Cap especially the pentatonic.

Here’s the link

Recently got this book Currently reading about intervals. I like the fact that there is a test at the end of each chapter so you can verify if you got it :wink:

I just got Edly’s Music Theory for Practical People | Edly's Musical EdVentures and am working through the 1st ebook and have had so many lightbulbs turn on. They’re short, easy-to-digest chapters with exercises (and humor!) to make you use the theory/see the patterns yourself. It’s not specific to bass but does include bass clef in its examples.

Interesting how much the price for the book back in 2019 increased compared to today’s price. Spiral-bound was cheaper than paperback about $1.50. Now the spiral-bound increased so much in comparison to 2019 :hushed:
