I bought this book before I ever even picked up a bass. I don't play guitar, so I'm very much an amature. I find it easy to follow. Pretty straight forward. How to tune, hold the bass, play it properly, then it dives right into method and reading music. I've only just begun, but so far so good!

After having tried various instruments throughout years (with and without teachers), I can tell this book is one of the best methods available. Each theory part is broken down to simple exercises and along learning bass techniques, you are learning the basic music notation theory. Each day, you can learn something new, and you never get bored, as you can see actual progress.
Another great thing is how the tracks are split on the CD. Some of you might find it trivial, but when a whole chapter is put on one single track, it becomes frustrating to have to fast-forward it to repeat an exercise. But this is not the case here, as each exercise is on a different track.
If you choose to buy this book, let me give you an advice: from the first pages, play every exercise with a metronome. It will train you to count and to keep the beat steady. As you will gain some experience with timing, try to turn off the metronome and count on your own.

This is an awesome instructional book. I have been playing bass for 2.5 years and for most of it i have been learning how to read notes with bach's work. However, i recently stopped taking lessons, and my guitar teacher suggested this book if i wanted to keep learning. Obviously the beginning was extremely easy, but i still learned some stuff i never knew. I am about half way through and i am loving it, i play along to the CD and the book gives you multiple styles of music to play along to. I also like how it gets progressively harder, but the book still keeps the songs pretty short so you dont have to spend like an hour on 1 song. I would definitely recommend that people buy this whether they are learning or just want to practice a bit. I really enjoy it and best of all, the book was dirt cheap!

I got this for my 11 year old son. He has been playing acoustic and electric for about a year using the Hal Leonard Guitar Method Books 1-3 which he enjoyed. Now he wants to learn bass too, so naturally we looked at the Bass Method book. This book is great for a beginner. It starts out simple with lots of good exercises for each string and gradually gets more complicated.
We use Hal Leonard for a basic foundation. He works with his teacher and they combine this book with whatever other music he wants to play such as "Learn to Play Bass with Metallica" or his favorite CD's. I looked at other bass books but felt that this was the best for beginners. Also, do yourself a favor and get a metronome if you want to play bass!
