This is a Bass Line Bible!Actual Customer Testimonial - I want to thank you for your book The Bottom Line. As a late-middle-aged novice bassist (of sorts), I´m delighted by your choce of material and your presentation of it. You´ve confirmed many things I´ve long suspected but could not find good information regarding, including forward motion, the importance of 3rds and 7ths, the use of fingerboard patterns, and many more. And you´ve raised and explained many more things I hadn´t thought about, such as thinking of jazz in 12/8 time, the ride cymbal, and tipping in two-beat. I own dozens of jazz and bass music books, but this one book and its CD have brought more together for me than any of them. It´s a joy just to sit and read it, even when my bass is miles away. Again, thanks very much for this truly great work. -- Jack Clark (Idyllwild, California)
