Highly Recommended  Oct 13, 2008
I'm a Software Engineer. My wife is always on to me as to why I have to have umpteen books on a particular subject and only a few on another. I've explained before that it's not a question of how many books you have, it's a question how few you need before a subject can be comprehended.

This is a reference book, it helps to guide an individual towards an understanding of a concept (the how and the why) as opposed to, do this, do that, and do the other, now on to the next thing...

I highly recommend this book to those individuals, who, once a concept has been explained to them actually go out and attain a measure of mastery by applying that concept.
CD IS BAD   Feb 8, 2008
Great book but one thing missing  Jan 31, 2008
This is a great book. You will learn not only to play the instrument but also to learn how to be a real bassist. You can also learn plenty of stuff about music. You may already see what other reviewers liked about the book. Some people complained that this book contained too much stuff on music, but I believe that you should know far more than that to be a bass player.

However, there is one big missing thing I hope the author add to the next edition. The book does not contain any left hand fingerings at all. You are totally on your own when play the examples. This will be quite a job for a beginner. In addition, I hope the author would take more time to explain left hand techniques such as muting using 3-fret stretching.

Even without details about the left hand stuff, this book is sure far bettern than the majority of other methods book. Overall I recommend this book to anyone.
Review for book  Nov 21, 2007
The book is great the shipping was great. I am learning to play the bass guitar and the idiot's guide is just what I need!
Disappointing  Aug 25, 2007
This introduction to the bass guitar rushes the reader through the basics without spending enough time actually helping you learn the basics. The bass lines are dull too. However the "play along" tracks on the accompanyting CD are great and probably worth the price of the book.
