I hope nobody thinks I'm advertising, these are free anyway. A few weeks ago I found what i think are the best bass lessons on the web and in fact the best lessons in anything I've seen yet. You may already have seen them but check out Scottsbass.

This is one I'm working on along with the next one

Which takes you from simple pentatonic to Dorian scales and 9ths and 13ths, which all sounds scary until you see the video.

The guy is a natural teacher, my job for most of my working life. He plays like a dream the video quality is great and so are the camera angles. There's dozens of lessons too.

I wish I'd seen them five years ago. Still plenty to learn from them though as I've learned too many songs parrot fashion and have no solid theory or technique. I love the way he slips little bits of theory into bite sized practical tips.

his vids pop up in my youtube news feed once in a while, good teacher but he knows shit all about theory

to be fair, that's the case with most bassists
modes are a social construct

You are probably being unjust here. A good teacher only hands out fruit that is just out of reach and doesn't frustrate a student by handing out more than they can possibly digest.

The truth is that most of his lessons are structured so as to increase a students awareness of theory but this is buried behind a practical approach. To extend the metaphor he sweetens the fruit before he hands it out. These are well thought out lessons.

meh, I might not know much about theory but I get by just fine thank you.

and Scott Devine is terrific.
