Hi, I'm currently in the process of composing my letter to Santa and i'm trying to decide what bass book i'd like. I've been reading through the book related posts on the forums, and i've been looking on amazon, i've been finding it hard to decide on what book would best suit what i'm after. I've been gigging as long as i've been playing bass (3 years) but i'm aware of the holes in my technique. I can't sight read, my music theory is a bit shaky and my slap technique is a bit sloppy (although i'm fine tuning it!). Can anyone recommend a good book (preferably with a DVD or CD...for the visuals and having something to play along too) that might cover most of these topics? I was thinking of Hal Leonard's Bass Method book and maybe Ed Friedland's Slap DVD.
