Hi, I'm looking into starting to learn/work out basslines to some jazz classics, and I'm thinking of buying one of the New Real Book series from Sher Music. Maybe Volume III because I really like some of the Herbie Hancock tunes on it... Which one would you get? Innocent Questions: Do they have the bass lines written out separately or do you just follow the left hand of the piano? And what key would you get the books in and why? I noticed one had "Bass Clef". What's that about? Note: I've used fake books before when I was studying piano and jazz theory, but I'm wondering about specifics for playing bass, which I've just started recently. Thanks all for the help. Slave.
