I think it's about time I learned scales properly, I know a few scales but I want to learn the theory behind scales and any other musical theory that would help with my bass playing how should i go about doing this?

Get a theory book or preferably a teacher.


Any specific book you could recommend?

If you go to any music store, they should just have little gig books that have every imaginable scale in them, in sheet music and tab. I have one of those, and they're really helpful.

You could look up music theory on amazon.com


Theres no sites that could get me started before I get a book?

For scales start with: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=519196. Good former sticky.

And yes there are some excellent books out there on theory; check a few bass related websites for more info. But I am going to concur with Bales, here get a teacher is going to be a great investment.. While many of us can learn quite nicely from books, music theory can be complex and confusing when you start digging in for the first time. A teacher can shorten the learning curve considerably.
