4.0 out of 5 stars The perfect accompanyment for your bass., April 7 2010
This review is from: 101 Bass Tips: Stuff All the Pros Know and Use (Paperback)
There are a load of bass how-to books out here in varying degrees of topics, styles and ability levels. This book is for everyone who plays an electric bass, whatever style.

If you don't know Gary Willis as a player, see [...] or familiarize with his music on something like iTunes. Monster player! Gary has a straight forward, realistic and therefore easily understood approach to the things on his list, and all 101 of them are useful. No fluff. From how to set your bass up properly to play as well is it can with you, to finger exercises and technique, to what side of the drummer to set up on.

Topics are not listed alphabetically or by topic. My guess is so you read through it all and each piece of information can stand out in your mind from the other.

I've also purchased Ed's book 'The Working Bassist's Handbook'. Geared specifically to the career bassist (doh, its in the title), is more in depth, a heavier load and read to sift through, and you have to read music to be able to use the examples. For a dummy bassist like me who does not [yet?] read, much of it is over my head. but also a great book

101 Bass Tips however, is THE practical hands-on manual for the dynamic duo of you and your bass. Every bass case should be sold with a copy already inside.
