    Tab online just doesn't work for me, I need standard notation to go with it so I can get note durations down accurately.

    Check out a book called Bass Logic I think its called. Its a spiral notebook type thing with "The Thinker" statue on the front holding a bass I think.

    Got some great stuff in it.

    Yup and its available at for $19.95.
  4. There are four books I would recommend:

    Glenn Letsch, Bass For Beginners: The Complete Guide
    David Overthrow, Beginning Electric Bass
    Ed Friedland, Hal Leonard Bass Method
    Bert Casey, Bass Guitar Primer

    Good Luck
