mods move this if nesc. so we decide to check out barnes and noble to kill some time. so i go right to theonly section that really interests me(besides the sex ed section), which is the music section. so i am looking through a bunch of different bass books and i come accross one that caught my eye. bass playing for dummies. one of those yellow and black dummy books. so i said frig it. if it sucks, i can always return it. so i'm at home on sunday, reading, and i find the book very helpful. after skimming through it, and moving to sections on reading music and this one section about scales. it answered every question that my x guitar player would try to answer for me, but would always just tell me something that didnt make sense. this book made sense of all of it. so yeah. this book helped a lot. on a side note, the movie was funny as hell.
