    After years of playing in a band and struggling to figure out how to play the bass guitar on my own, I grew frustrated with feeling stuck in the same patterns. After so many attempts and not getting much out of the pile of books on my practice room floor, I was about to give up. With Mike Overly’s Tone Note Music Method for Bass Vol. 1, I yielded to trying it again. To my excitement, with this book I learned from the beginning with a method that is presented clearly and in order. I’m relieved to actually understand a music method as it applies to the bass fretboard. Now I can continue with a solid foundation and am looking forward to Volume 2! Thank you!

    Amazing! I recently purchased the Tone Note Music Method book and find that your review is absolutely true. I’m AMAZED that I’m learning how to play any song in any key!!! And it’s just not me, I’ve turned on my other bass player friends and they can’t believe that they’re doing it too. All of a sudden we’re geniuses! Really, really cool. We’re all playing better than ever and man, are we having fun! The BEST method book on bass we ever bought.

    I picked up Tone Note Bass at NAMM.
    Using the connect the dots method lets me to learn at my own pace and play real songs from day 1.
    Breaking music down into simple concepts and then building on them – one at a time – is the right way to go.

    This is the book I wish I had when I first started to learn bass guitar. It guides you step by step, from one musical concept to another. No gaps or confusion, and you learn in the proper order with a good solid foundation.
