7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By vince arizzi on Feb. 8 2004
Format: Paperback
Being a musician already, I like this book because it doesn't move to slow through the beginning. It gives a few pages of introduction to music, but it doesn't overkill. The progression through the material is excellent as well. The pace is good, and explanations helps to make these exercises worthwhile.
I would highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to expand on their prior bass knowledge, and get into some jazz and blues. I have taken big leaps in my playing, and I haven't had it for very long.

Format: Paperback
It's a very interesting book, with lots of good exercices. I particularly liked the way how Ed Friedland introduce the reader in the way how to construct your own bass lines. He gives you space for you to do your own bass line, for you to express your own imagination. If you are a starter in this walking bass business, I recomend you to buy this book, you won't be deceived.

Format: Paperback
This book delivers the goods. You'll be playing good bass lines right away, and steadily adding more elements as you progress. The book gets five stars, but
I didn't give the package five stars because the CD sounds fairly dull. All the tracks are recorded at slow tempi without much feeling. A few alternate takes with with faster tempi and more complex accompaniments would have been a big plus. A nice complement to this book is Epstein's "Blues Bass Handbook", which has the good grooves minus most of the music theory.

It is far too technical for a beginning bass guitarist.....It is well constructed and very thorough in it's approach to figuring out what to play!.....L.S.
