    Let me start by saying these books are incredibly overpriced. All the Leduc publications have always been ridiculously high. Not Sheetmusicplus' fault. I found them even higher at other sellers. But my bass teacher wanted me to get Books 1 & 2, so I did. At least book 1 is fairly...

    thick and comes with a CD of Rabbath playing examples. I am enjoying the book. I wouldn't call it a beginner book. The first 3 pages kind of are, because you play arco on the open strings for a page or two, and then learn the half position notes on each string. But by page 4 you are playing a lot of ⅛ notes across all the strings and it gets very challenging. I wouldn't use it for kids just starting out who are just learning to read music, there are, no doubt, better books for them. So I classified it more as an intermediate book for players that have been studying for a few years and are ready to move to college level exercises.
