From choosing an instrument that suits you to playing with a band, this book offers a good grounding in the art of playing bass guitar. It includes chapters on reading music, bass theory, bass styles, and basic and advanced practice, all using clear diagrams and notation and tied in to the tracks on the accompanying CD. There is also a section on 10 great bassists, from Motown's James Jamerson to Flea, with lists of their most inspiring recordings.
