    This is a really well designed and presented book from Rockschool which is perfect for total beginner bass players. As a music teacher I'm always checking out tutor books but this stands out because it's attractively presented, contemporary and most importantly contains top quality material for a new bass player to build a solid foundation to their playing. It tells you the stuff you really NEED to know. Here's what you get: Clear colour pictures and thoughtful diagrams to introduce you to your gear, to reading tab and musical notation. There's examples with backing tracks taking you from first notes to your first piece. What I really like is that you get to play different music styles, indie, rock, metal, pop... No 'Buffalo Gals' here.....It's especially important for a bass player to connect with and be 'part of the sound of a band' and the cool song examples included with this book help you experience that. You also get a download code which gives you access to extra pieces to play including the music to print out, quizzes and short videos that explain really key stuff like how to hold your bass, what to do with your hands, using a plectrum and setting up your kit. Yes, you need to bother with this bit or you're not going to get the most out of the book. If you know about Rockschool exams, this book totally fills the space between getting your first bass and being ready to tackle your Debut Grade material. Enjoy!
