Hey I am just starting bass and I got my bass and amp and such, and now since I dont have the funds to invest in a teacher I'm going to settle for books at the present. I have just ordered two books from amazon and want to know if they are any good. One i just bass guitar for dummies, while despite being from the franchise of "dummy" books, I heard was pretty good for beginners to beginner/intermediate. Also for more technical stuff like chords and scales I bought Serious Electric Bass: The Bass Player's Complete Guide to Scales & Chords (Contemporary Bass Series). I look forward to any replies or tips with these books especially.
