That teaches you the basics, shows you some techniques... etc
I mean that will help me play more advanced... not completely just for beginners that's really easy, but something that covers ALOT when it comes to bass playing.

I have many on guitar. with riffs that are good for stretching your fingers on the fretboard...etc and using the right hand, finger tapping, sweep picking...etc many techniques like that!
But i'm realy interested in the bass now, and would love to buy some good books similar but for the bass instead.

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

He taught me for a few months

a little hard to understand his accent, but his book is very easy to follow and shows you alot of cool things

ie tapping, left hand slapping and my personal favorite name The Cross Hammer!

Good book easy to follow

I use it to teach my students
