Here's what has been said about Essential Sightreading Studies for Electric Bass series:
I highly recommend Dave Motto's book to anyone trying to get their
reading together. The method is so clear that with a little diligent
study, even a beginner should be sightreading in no time.
VICTOR BAILEY

... an excellent method for up-and-coming bassists--a must read!
WILL LEE

... I think David Motto's book is a very good vehicle for bass players to
strengthen their sightreading. If you take these simplistic steps everyday,
you'll be reading everything and anything.
CHRISTIAN MCBRIDE

The best tool yet for helping young players to learn to read.
TERRY BURNS, Head of Bass Department Musictech College

BASSICS MAGAZINE REVIEW:
... these 48 pages provide a well-rounded sampling of the kind of lines you might be
required to play in the real world, and will go a long way toward developing and/or
revitalizing your sightreading skills. In a world full of tab, and players who may not
appreciate the benefits of proper sightreading, Essential Sightreading Studies
is, well, just that, essential.

ODD TIME SIGHTREADING FOR BASS
As stated by Anthony Vitti on his newest title:
The concept for this book was very easy to come up with. The fact is that there just is not a lot of material out there for bass players to read in odd meters. A problem I think most players face, is the fact that you don't see certain meters very often. But, then you find yourself playing a show or recording a song and you are expected to be comfortable reading and playing in 7/8, 9/8, 5/4 or any number of odd meters. We spend most of our time playing in 4/4. Meters like 3/4, 6/8 & 12/8 are fairly common, but you still may not find yourself as comfortable feeling these times as you do 4/4.

The point of this book is to get you comfortable reading and feeling a variety of different time signatures. I have written the bass lines so that they are consistent, but have enough variation to keep you from memorizing lines. There are a variety of tempos and feels. You will see how I develop each line throughout an example. I will increase the rhythmic depth and many times, the technical difficulty in playing the line. If you read through these examples many times, I think you will start to feel a lot more comfortable about playing in odd meters. I am also providing drum grooves at two tempos that you can download. This way you will hear the feel I had in mind when writing the bass lines. 45 pages. Written in standard notation only (no TAB).
