Comments about Hal Leonard Play Bass Today Pack (Book/CD):

I purchased this item as a gift for a friend and the DVDs don't play in his laptop's DVD drive. I contacted MF support over a week ago and have not heard back from them as of yet.

    Great Base for Bass Playing

    By Jonathan Bradley

    from Belmont, NC

    Comments about Hal Leonard Play Bass Today Pack (Book/CD):

    I ordered this package when I ordered a Squire J-Bass and Rumble 15. Having used Hal Leonard products before, I had some level of trust behind my decision. The intro lessons seem a bit overly basic for folks that can read music, but trust the lesson and plod through it anyway. The building up method, moving from string to string has a great way of teaching your fingers some muscle memory, especially when reaching for notes. I haven't been able to build up to the songbook yet, but the 8 bar mini-songs are very well written and have building challenge. I'm impressed.

      Best Christmas present ever!!

      Comments about Hal Leonard Play Bass Today Pack (Book/CD):

      I recently purchased a Bass guitar although I've never played one before in my life. For Christmas my wife got me this set of books. After only a couple weeks I'm playing and having a great time. Very easy to understand and follow along. If your beginner like me, this is a great buy.
