I am a bass player in a pick up band and we cover a bunch of SRV songs. This book was very helpful for me because it takes a long time to figure out the tab by myself and I learn a lot from the SRV bass lines because they are very melodic and don't really repeat themselves too often. If you are in a band that plays SRV this is highly recommended. Or if you are interested in rock bass lines, following SRV songs will be a help unless you are already a pro. The tab seems very faithful to the music I play along and rarely notice a difference (I certainly couldn't do it nearly as well).

The songs I have played so far are accurate note for note with the original recordings.
I am a huge SRV fan and therefore I'm really glad this was made available.

Buy this and the guitar tab "Lightning Blues" and start a power trio!

If you need or want to learn the bass for these SRV songs, then this is the bass book for you. It's accurate and complete, it's got bass tabs. However, if you are interested in learning something about Tommy Shannon, SRV's bassist, then this is not the book you want. Shannon appears on the cover, and there's a one mention of him in the book, his name appears once on a bio page--about SRV. The book has no info or discussion of Shannon and his style. I'm a big fan of SRV--and I know some might consider this blasphemy--but I got this book because I'm also a fan of Shannon.
I'm also a fan of bass books. However, I don't buy the books just to learn the bass line for songs. I can usually do that on my own, and, if not, there are a lot of online resources to help out. So basically I buy these books for the added value of information and discussion, of which none appears here. For what it does offers, this book does an excellent job. It nails it. It's accurate and complete. It's what it doesn't offer that earns the 3 stars.
