Excellent book I recommend to all bass players, whether beginners or intermediates for a refresher course for example.
Florent is a bass player, he expressed all his experience in this method and revised recently.
Bonus that will please some (like the fans Mypollux), most if not all partitions are available in the last part, for practice of course.
A beautiful brick that is well worth its price. Moreover, Florent offers both pdf and paper for the same price!
What to bring this valuable reading everywhere, on your shelf for example ...
The only slightly less positive point to me is some passages a little more complicated to understand, especially when we decided to learn the bass in self-taught. But it remains a personal opinion and it would soon be filled by a few lessons with a teacher.
A chapter devoted to ancillary material on bass (amp, head amp, effects pedals ,...) have been more comfortable, although there are monthly and other Internet sites on the subject, but not really in addressing the various settings for example, or even the expected results from a distortion pedal or Buzz.
In short, a book to recommend more than warm, it is unclear how we can do better because most of the chapters are richly illustrated.
I am fortunate to know personally Florent and enjoy his knowledge.
I was able to get his way when it was reissued.
Since then, I feel more comfortable with my bass and my musical entourage also made me this remark.
We can find explanations in this method the instrument (history, maintenance etc ...), art, theory (explanation of scales, harmony ... etc.) and a multitude of information and practical advice.
All this with exercises very comprehensive, very well explained and accessible.
In addition you can find other exercises that complement this method by going to the website of Florent.
All explanations are very detailed and you feel a certain closeness between author and reader (teacher, student) that allows us to understand more easily.
Among the different chapters one can find parts that will be affordable for beginners and others that will interest the more experienced.
With over 360 pages that comprise this method we have for hours of work plus the added bonus of low scores of different albums Mypollux very interesting to work well.
To advise all bass enthusiasts and all those who want to start with this instrument.
