Format: Paperback
I have been self-learning for about 4 months now and i have used a number of internet sites, pc software and books to help me. This book has always been my main reference point. It will suit a wide range of readers, from complete beginners (eg how to hold the bass) to more experienced players (different slapping techniques, natural/artificial harmonics etc)
The book contains loads of exersises which are only scored in bass clef (no tab) although it shows you how to read bass clef. It also shows you how to read the rhythms.
It would have been nice if there was a CD with the examples on however.
By working through the book, making sure you understand and have mastered the examples before moving onto the next section, will largly improve most bass players.

An easy to understand book strictly for beginners 2 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book contains simple how to's for the bass guitar and is inteneded for beginners, even intermediate players can benefit with this book since it offers reinforcements of bass fundamentals. Decent illustrations set this book back a little bit, but the simple and helpful exercises, and easy to understand text more than makes up for that.
