    super learning guide

    as a piano player trying to learn bass guitar, this book appeals to me. exercises are clearly laid out in both staff and tab notation. i think if i practice with these exercises as my guide, i will become proficient in playing and understanding my instrument.

    I have purchased a few books over the years and they have always been a little bit of a let down.After buying this title and getting into it, I have been pleasantly surprised by the writing and the ease at which I have improved my playing and understanding of my instrument.
