For use with my students I ordered this method by Ed Friedland. I must say, never before with other methods had I so much fun when I played through all the 3 parts of this book! It comprises many styles of bass lines, including Rock, Country, Blues, Shuffle, Jazz, Swing, Latin, Waltz, Reggae, Funk, Russian and Gypsy.
The book comes with 3 CDs played by a real band, not just MIDI. It is written very well built up pedagogically, step by step for a beginner up to an intermediate/advanced level. The necessary theoretical musical knowledge is also explained. The book is written in English but can easily be understood even by a non-native speaker.
Though it's always best to have a teacher it could be of good use to work as a self instructor. I advised all my students to buy the book and they just love it! The price is reasonable, most songs can also be used for study on the upright bass. Thanks, Ed!
