    I heard this book actually helps. Doesn anyone have it and/or recomend it?
  2. I recommend it. It is a great book. It has a lot of good chapters in theory and standards as well as chapters on cleaning and setting up your bass. Really a must have for a beginner.

    It's an excellent all-around book. I've given it as a gift to a number of bassist friends and they all think it's as useful as much as I do. I definitely recommend it. ;)

    +1 to everybody

    I have it and it is very helpful, has lots of nice scales and such, coveres many different musical genres and has a music cd containing the examples.
  8. Yup, I recommend it. It helped me learn the basics quite well. :cool:
