: I've seen quite a few posts inquiring about some good bass instruction books.

: Here's a few I have used and feel are noteworthy:

: Fingerboard Harmony For Bass - Gary Willis - Hal-Leonard Publishing

: (Good Beginner Book!)

: Mel Bay's Complete Book Of Bass Essentials - Bunny Brunel - Mel Bay Publications

: Bass Guitar Scale Manual - Harvey Vinson - Amsco Publications

: Note Reading Studies For Bass - Arnold Evans - Mel Bay Publications

: If you master these books, you will become a very strong bass player in both

: theory & technique. You can probably find them on BASSBOOKS.COM or MELBAY.COM


: The last book on note reading is mostly for those who would like to pursue

: playing professionally doing session work...they don't hand you TAB at a

: session gig....LOL

: When I say "MASTER" I mean practice, practice, practice!....LOL



Some good books for learning Jazz Bass are:

The Evolving Bassist - by Rufis Reid

Modern Walking Bass Teqnique

Forget the tab right from the beginning.

If you want to really improve your reading go get some

classical books for Bassoon, they are in aproximately the same register

as the bass and can be very difficult !
