“Chuck Sher and Marc Johnson have given us a wonderful book. One which should provide players at all levels with months of good hard work, a lot of fun, and a healthy measure of frustration. (I’d swear some of the things Marc plays on the accompanying tapes just can’t be done). It’s a pleasure to encounter a Bass Method so well conceived and executed.”
