  2. Proper posture and positioning
  3. Playing With a Pick
  4. Playing "Finger Style"

  2. The Musical Alphabet
  3. Reading Bass TAB (the most popular form of written music!)

Part 3: Your Theory

  1. The Major Scale Formula (i.e. how to build any major scale from scratch)
  2. The Minor Scale Formula (i.e. how to build any minor scale from scratch)
  3. Intervals (an explanation and their shapes)
  4. Constructing Triads

Part 4: Your Application

  1. Linear Major Scales (what they are and their uses)
  2. Linear Minor Scales (what they are and their uses)
