Sight Reading for the Bass (11/10/2002)
'Ron Velosky, in Sight Reading for the Bass. Has written a concise and comprehensive, yet easy to follow guide for the beginning bass sight reader. The book is composed in a clear and intutative way; it's examples are practical ones, and it's lessons can be immediately applied to everyday reading situations. It is the most effective reading text for beginners I have used in 26 years of teaching the bass, and it has become one of our main text in the Electric Bass Techniques course offered here at Shoreline C.C. A classic book along with Simandl, The Evolving Bassist and Modern Reading Text in 4/; it is a must for anyone who is serious about learning to sight tread on the bass'.
