The best method, by far!

I had been playing bass in cover bands for many years, but only after I went through this book, cover to cover, I was able to call myself a bassist. I was finally able to understand the fretboard, read sheet music, in a logic and objective way, that kept me engaged throughout the process. I started from almost zero knowledge and worked my way into playing in some local musical theater productions and playing with established local acts. I really loved this Groove3 format where the audio samples are right below the sheet music, I had to work from the CD. Ed Friedland is one of the top bass teachers in the world, and his method is the best!
