I've search the threads but didnt come up with anything. With some of my christmas money on some bass books. I have bene reccomended "standing in teh shadows of motown" soi will definitly be getting that, but i'm thinking of getting another one too. I can't decide between "101 Bass tips by gary willis" and "the working bassists tool kit" by ed friedland. Both these books seem to be complimentary to studay, rather than direct study books, and this is what i'm lookign for. Do any of you have experience with these two books and could point me in the right direction? p.s. I'm also tempted to buy both!
