Format: Paperback
First off, this book is for ELECTRIC BASS GUITAR.
The "Essential Elements 2000: A Comprehensive Band Method" is a great book for a young person who is learning an instrument for the first time. There is a fingering chart in the back of the book to make looking up fingerings quick and easy. The book starts off very basic with the parts of the instrument. The easiest notes to play and finger are presented first with exercises to practice them. This book comes with a play-along CD. This CD includes all solo exercises.

Good Beginner Book for Teaching Note Reading Jan. 30 2009
By David Stahly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I teach bass guitar lessons. This is a good beginner book for teaching note reading on electric bass. If your bass student wants to play electric bass in a middle school or high school jazz band, they will need to learn to read music. This beginner book does a good job getting them started on learning how to read and play notes on the bass clef. After this book, they will want to move on to a more advanced book that teaches scales, chords, music theory, improvisation, and more.

If your bass student wants to play rock, metal, grunge, country, or about anything else, they probably don't need to learn to read notes right away and should learn to read tab instead. Most of their music is written in tab form and will allow them to play their favorite music more quickly. Note reading would be a good skill for them to pick up at some point, as well as music theory, chord structure, scales, improvisation, etc.

In my experience as a bass and guitar instructor for 20 years, most kids don't have the patience to work through note reading playing the inane little ditties that fill these types of books. They want to play songs they know. Get them started playing the songs they like first, and then introduce them to note reading later.
Great Bass Book Sept. 19 2013
By Truvor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Really simple, smart curriculum for learning bass. Songs are simple, yes, but a great way to add bass knowledge whether you already play guitar or just starting out. The CD really helps for playing along, but sounds a bit cheesy. Don't let that stop you though.
