    If you intend on getting it, don't. Material is TOO basic, even for beginners.

    This is your father's bass method. Maybe its good if your in your 50's and you want to rock like Elvis.

    This book is great. I bought this along with the level 2 book and the song book. I just started playing bass 3 months ago and this has helped become a good beginner bass player. I havent moved onto kevek 2 yet but learning how toread music in my eyes...

    couldbe vital to me in the future and I like the thought of being able to read music. There is tablature as well if you want the easier way out, but in my opinion it would be good just to stay with the notes to become more educated player
