    not any tabs?

    • Rob

      If you’re learning MIles Davis solos shouldn’t you be past needing tab?

      • laurent

        no Rob, i don’t.

          Tabs are annoying ! I love the old and some new books without this nonsense. If you have a record you can check how it’s played and working hard on your reading – no shortcuts ever ! Nobody gives you a notes with tabs in orchestra or studio situation and you never learn a reading completely cause you’ll be staring at numbers and only check if it’s quarter note or 16th and check where’s pause or repetition sign in sheet ! Tabs imo is good for begginers to make some fun with easy pieces but if you seriously think about being a pro bass player you should avoid it.

          • I don’t care of What you love or what you want.
            I’m not à pro and i don’t want to be.
            If i want (need) à short cut, this is my trouble, not your. So don’t juge me and anyone Who don’t read notes. I play bass for fun for more than 20 years, I love miles music and play his solo for fun some times. A book like that could help me to play better.
            My question was simple…. Is it with tabs ?
            So don’t tell me your life…. Thx
            Enjoy your Day !
