Scale: Set of notes in certain key. If you want to be in key, you have to play within scale.

Major scale: Sound of Music "do ray me fa so la..."

Minor scale: A bit more "gloom & doom" if ya know what I mean. Extra handy in a more somber tune or perhaps making your audience cry a little.

Chord: Music is built around chords. Synonymous with harmony. Sets of notes make harmonies. With bass, it's kind of like an imaginary set of notes you don't have to play but pack the most punch! Every chord has a root, a 3rd & a 5th relating to the notes being played in the scale.   Chord progression: string of cords that follow each other. Endless possibilities! Multiple notes! Yeah!

Arpeggio: Thinking of NOTES in the CHORDS separately.

Melody: String of notes that sound good on their own.

Harmony: Two or more notes that sound good together or 2+ instruments playing together.

Staff: Lines music is on.

Staff: Lines music is on.

Root note: Usually the lowest note in chord. Base note: Note that decides the chord. HIGHLY EMPHASIZE that grounding note!

This is only the beginning! 
It's not over until my fingers are as pudgy and perfect as Victor Wooten's.

Wanna watch a mind-melting vid of Victor shredding so hard — he pops a  string?! 

Watch Victor become one with his bass.

Or, perhaps you'd rather watch Vic serenade an undeserving group while they get rained on. 

Watch seven minutes and thirty seconds of pure bliss.
