David Hodge has written a very good book on the bass - of which there are very few.
I'm taking my time with the book and am trying to master it's approach fairly well before moving on and it has made a major difference in my playing.
David Hodge states in the introduction to The Complete Idiot's Guide to Playing Bass Guitar that he wants to help his readers think like bassists.

Fantastic book for someone with no musical background or training. It starts out slowly enough with basic theory and language that a novice won't feel overwhelmed. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Karolina K Phillips
