    I am a hobby bass player (5 string) and I found Fretboard Theory

    I am a hobby bass player (5 string) and I found Fretboard Theory Volume I and II an excellent resource. Key topics in these books for me are:
    • Doing the detective work to figure out the key and underlying major scale of a song
    • Modal interchange (this is fabulous and explains why an out of place chord appears in a song)
    • Lead patterns-starting with pentatonic and extending to major/minor/harmonic minor-soloing on the bass is fun too.
    • Your extremely clear explanation of modes.
    • CAGED arpeggios-very valuable for bass
    • Outlining chords and chord progressions-where it all comes together.

    I strongly recommend these two books for any guitar or bass player who really wants to understand songs. This is also a great foundation for learning complex music such as jazz.
