Congratulations to Ariane Cap! Her book Music Theory for the Bass Player has become a “#1 Best Seller” on Amazon.com (in Bass Guitar Songbooks). This comes as no surprise to me, nor I hope to any reader of Just Jazz Guitar, where I review the book in this month’s issue. Since this is the magazine’s last month of publication it may be hard to find, so I have reprinted the review here (with permission from the magazine, of course).
I will just add here that every bass player should own a copy of this superb book. Ariane Cap’s ingenious linking of logical fingering and hand position with music theory makes this a truly practical “theory” book, while her clear and concise explanations and directions are easy to understand and follow. Follow her advice and you will become a much better player.
