    Has anyone used this book? If so how does it compare with other of the same type (i.e The Bass Grimoire)

    I had it and I sold it. Very overwhelming to say the least. there are plenty of other good books out there to help you out. I have the Bass Grimiore as well and it is a nice resource. I like and have some of the books found at

    Try going there and see what you can find.
    The site also has some cool resources you can download for your personal use on PDF files
