Are you a bass enthusiast, but not a bass player?
You might be able to change that. Hal Leonard Corp. has released the book Teach Yourself to Play Bass: A Quick and Easy Introduction for Beginners.
As it notes on the cover, you don’t even need to read music to start. The book instructs using a combination of tablature, rhythmic symbols, diagrams and photos. There’s info on the parts of the bass guitar, scales, finger positions, and online access to demonstration tracks.
The 56-page paperback is available here.
