Comments about Hal Leonard Building Walking Bass Lines (Book/Online Audio):
This book was a let down for me. I wanted something that taught walking bass lines and what I got was an over my head way too advanced book full of lessons. I've been playing for over ten years and I play all styles of music and trying to work through this book almost brought my development in music to a stand still. You have to know how to read music and this title tries to teach that but only touches on it with one or two pages and they are not as clear in their instruction as they should be. It's okay for those that can read music but stay away from it if you don't.
