    Has anyone read the "Idiots Guide to Bass" that just came out this year? I can't find any reviews posted anywhere or a copy in any store.

    The Dummies book on Bass was great. I wonder how they compare. Same information? Different? Better or worse? Has anyone read both?

    I don't have an answer to your question or anything productive or helpful to add to this thread, but your user name is my last name and it's quite unsettling.

    What a coincindence, my last name is Superduck.

    No, j/k I have read it, and it is not to bad, but rather, just what the name implies, a Complete Idiot Guide.

    I have a typewriter made by 'Hermes' company.

    Wasn't there a Greek God by that name also?

    ...and one of my favourite '60s bands was called Hermes & The Hermits.

    I actually own Bass Guitar For Dummies. Nothing groundbreaking in there...nonetheless, a good read & qwik reference guide.
    This is not intended a knock: Good for those Bathroom visits, too.

    I have the "Dummies" book(Yellow cover); I wasn't aware of an "Idiots' Guide"(Orange cover).

    Didn't realize they had an IDIOTS book, I too have the DUMMIES one... The ditto what was said earlier, & the Audio CD to practice too, is good for practice...
