Is FaChords also for bass?

It depends. The interactive learning software has an option for setting bass tunings (4, 5 and 6 strings). The music theory tutorials, even if they use the guitar fretboard to show the concepts better, can be applied to any musical instrument, as music theory is the same for all of them. However, at the moment, here you'll not find tutorials on specific bass-related topics, such as slap or walking bass. Maybe in the future. For now, you could enjoy the stuff of another Italian musician, Davie504 (he's from a city 200 km far from mine)
