Guitar Hal Leonard Electric Bass Method
Leonard Bass Method - Complete Edition: Books 1, 2 and 3 Bound Together in One Easy-to-Use Volume!
(Bass Method). The critically acclaimed Hal Leonard Electric Bass Method Second Edition in a handy composite edition!
Contains 3 books and 3 CDs for Levels 1, 2 and 3.
I enjoy playing drums, but when a nice bass showed up at the local pawn shop, i splurged. Afterwards, I checked out a few
volumes by the "names" in bass, but found them either overly complex, or overly exhaustive in information. Ed Friedland put
together the "just right" package.
First off, it does NOT depend on TAB. You start with notes. And even when TAB appears far into the book, it is not
necessary as you can still play in notes. And as mentioned below, you get to play "tunes" early one, even if they are
very simple. Thus, you get to build a base playing along with the band on the CD.
Everything progresses cleanly. You get pictures of fingerings, diagrams of fingerings, and (early on) numbering of the
fingering of notes under the notes themselves. In other words...
This is the book you want if you don't have/can't have a teacher. It won't take you all the way there by itself, but
you'll cross a few county lines on the way to the big time!

Dean E09 Edge Bass, Mahogany Finish
This mahogany-enhanced monster from Dean features a lightweight basswood body with a mahogany top, finished au
natural for serious good looks. Appointments include a Dean vintage bridge, a single Dean soapbar pickup, and a speedy
maple neck. It's an affordable axe that's ready for any modern style.
I've been learning to play bass with this model for about a year and a half, and I enjoy it thoroughly. It's lighter than
some instruments, but still has enough mass that it has a good tone. The neck is maybe not as slender as some fancier, faster
basses, but it's still quite comfortable. It stays in tune well, and I've never had any troubles with the knobs or electronics.
With only a single pickup, and just knobs for volume and treble, you don't have much flexibility in sound. If you're
just learning or playing for fun, this isn't much of an issue. The bass sounds great for a variety of jazz, blues and rock.
One person I play with thinks the tone from this bass is nicer than one of his that cost about eight times as much.
A couple of other thoughts... You'll want to find a local guitar store to help you make adjustments periodically (and
perhaps with initial setup), or learn to do it yourself. I use a Behringer practice amp, and it's partially responsible for
the good tone that I seem to get. Finally, I rarely use a pick - if that's more your style, the lack of a pick guard might be an issue for you.
