These are the books that I used to first learn how to play bass. I had the whole collection with CDs. The good thing about these books is that they force you to read standard notation. This will be important latter on when you progress in your musicianship. They help you not to get caught up in getting stuck with just using tablature. This is the first book on the series. I highly recommend all of them.
