Learning to play bass is not about studying---itâ€™s about playing---so it should be FUN! If youâ€™re looking to rock out, do you want to spend hours trying to figure out how to read music, and then plunk away at "The Old Gray Mare?" We didnâ€™t think so. No, we think you should play right away. Start with simple concepts like holding the bass and plucking a string, then move on to more advanced topics like building your own bass lines, arpeggios, basic theory, and warm-up exercises. In short, this is not your dadâ€™s bass method. Pick up that bass, open this book, and PLAY!
