    I did work his course for a few lessons but wasn't satisfied with it. For walking bass lessons I like Tomazz at walkingbasslessons.com. Excellent teacher, course is free. He's one of those 'if you like it you can buy him a beer' guys.

    I ended up downloading this book, just out of curiosity. I’m looking for intermediate jazz bass info, chromatic and scale lines, etc. the book is 89 pages , and it didn’t get into anything interesting for me til page 60. A few usable licks and ideas, but nothing mind blowing. Great book for a beginner though, IMO

    I do agree with James’ philosophy that learning walking bass lines is one of the best and most transformative things a bass player can study.
