    The last one is good for sight reading pitches, as there are several key signatures and accidentals, but not much rhythmic variation.

    The suggested fingerings are a little cumbersome, as--contrary to Bach--the author seems to have a serious aversion to the use of open strings.
  3. It doesn't give chord progressions though, which pisses me off. It's alright.

    And the JM video is ok..nothing to rant over. And I don't know why I got the Bass Tips vid, I forgot I hate jazz/funk I gues :D
