as far as bass, I am not certain. But the 'Real Books' are basically jazz guitar bibles with all the standars in them.

Just get that one in bass clef, you won't regret it.

i dont mean a book specifically for bass. i mean, a book thats tuned to c (e.g. can be used for piano, guitar/bass). once i have the chords there i can learn walking basslines for them.

The Real Books are good, but they have a lot of wrong stuff in them as well. The "New Real Books" are better for that. But if you want a lot of accuracy, then get the Jamey Aebersold books. They are usually really accurate and well made, and also have backtracks to them.
