    I was wondering if anyone has played through the book "60 Melodic Etudes" by Patitucci. It feels realy tough to get through. I've notice that the at my level right now, the only way I make any progress is by going really slow- reeeaally slow. Most licks don't seem to let themselve to smooth movement along the fret board and I wonder if I can really learn anything from this book or if it is just a distraction. Any thoughts are appreciated...

    That's the point. The etudes are supposed to help bassists get over the idiomatic weak points of the bass so you aren't limited to what "falls easy" on the bass.
