hey, anyone read Bass Guitar for dummies? just wondering if its a good book to read?
If you are starting out from absolute scratch then, yes I would recommend this book. It gives a good general over view of everything to do with playing bass, including some basic theory.
Another book which is very good IMO is :
The three volumes together (as in the link) in one edition, is money well spent IMO. Each volume has it's own CD.
A good site to check out is : www.studybass.com
+1 I have both books that I'm learning from. Real good starting point.
+ another 1
All 3 resources good, in my also-a-beginner opinion.
I did acoustic and some electric guitar many years ago, getting back into playing music.
Picked up a bass a couple of months ago after wanting to forever.
There is some overlap and some difference of opinion but nothing 'wrong' is presented - there are just different approaches. One may be better for you.
I have found that the Dummies book will get you into playing recogniseable (arguably useful) lines faster. I found this quite encouraging. Your experience may be slightly different.
cheers. yeah I am a beginner. started abit ago but having been on bass for awhile due to collage work. but I have spare time over easter to learn
