Irecommend this instruction because the language is at ease, and makeslearning such a fun and versatile experience. As a member of the rhythmsection, I know first-hand, how the bass helps to drive the band anddefine the harmony for the song. These books get you started on theright path to reading music as well. They also provide a good foundation on how to practice, and are versatile enough for all ages to understand."

"Kaitie has written a comprehensive series for the beginningbassstudent. She has covered the most basic things such as tuning thebassall the way to theory, ear training, and everything inbetween. Thesebooks are great for the student that wants to develop allaspects oftheir playing! Having all of this diversity in a series israre, and anice change from the usual instructional book!
Reading throughthese books is engaging and educational. Kaitie has you goingthoughdifferent styles all throughout. This makes learning much more fun andinteresting. I love that most of the written examples have thechordswritten above so a fellow student or instructor can play along.What agreat way to start creating music!
These books are greatfor astudent that is learning on their own or that has a privateinstructor.They are in depth, but not confusing for the beginner.
I would recommend these books to any beginning-intermediate bass student."
