  • March 30, 2012 wrong cd

    I was anxious to receive this book but was disappointed to discover that it came with the wrong CD. It was labeled correctly but contained over 50 tracks of blues instruction for guitar. the cd for this book has only45 tracks. I contacted Sheet Music Plus and they immediately sent...

    another book...same CD! I contacted Mel Bay the publisher and they sent me the correct CD. thanks Mel Bay and thanks SMP for trying to help and great customer support. the book and CD are excellent for learning country bass.
