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.
