THE CORE METHOD
A Complete and Innovative Method for 4,5 and 6 String Electric Bass.

This method, written by Michael Dimin, assumes that you've played bass for, at least, a few months and that you have a basic understanding of the major scale and can fairly easy figure out the location of any single note on the fretboard. Although there is a great deal to be learned from this book on its own, it is recommended to work through the book with a good teacher. Be advised that many bass instructors are not familiar with this method. I know, however, that if they take the time to go through this book that your lessons will be much more rewarding and your teacher will become a much better teacher.
