Glad to hear that the copies are getting there. Especially overseas. I'm planning on using just my post office box as the return address for Rahul's so I'm thinking he still won't be able to find me, even if he knows what town I'm in (it's always a good thing to have your house in your girlfriend's name... :wink: )

Let me know what mistakes you all happen to find. And thank you again and always.

Peace

You mean you haven't given Rahul your phone number and an open invitation to tea? Shame.

Hi. I just got my copy, complete with a very nice inscription by the maestro himself. I'm looking forward to taking a closer look at it after work today.

Iceland and Alexandria in the same day! That's wild.

Nick, thanks for your patience and I'm glad the bookmarker arrived safely too.

Helgi, I'll be more than interested in everything you've got to say about it as you're our resident live-in semi-professional bassist :wink:

Still a few out there...

Peace

Not that I've started to look yet, but what is the status of the errata page? I know you were fairly annoyed about the errors in one of the later chapters.

Should all go well it should be up and running next week. Keep your fingers crossed. It's not so bad but it is slightly annoying sometimes. For example, in the chapter where you learn how to read TAB I originally wrote out TAB and text instructions for "Happy Bithday to You" and guess what's still under copyright. So I quickly wrote TAB and text for "Twinkle Twinkle" and the publishers managed to put in the correct TAB but the text is still for "Happy Birthday."

The little things...

Peace

Happy Twinkle to you,
Happy Twinkle to you,
Happy Twinkle, dear whatsyername,
Happy Twinkle to you.

Don't sound too bad. :lol: :lol:

Thanks David, I just got mine in the mail :D I'm sending my publishers copy to My brother-in laws 13 year old nephew Seth. He plays the drums and wants to learn play the bass too.( sounds like a one man rhythm section :lol: ). Thanks for the kind words, and know that we are all very lucky to have a community like this to share with all our friends here :D

I have decided to take the challenge and learn to read music notation from this wonderful book, then work my way into The treble clef latter. After 36 years of playing by ear I think it is time for a old dog to learn some new tricks. I'm looking forward to learning new skills in the months and years ahead, as music is a great life long adventure 8) 8) 8) --ken

Good luck with the notation reading, Ken. If you approach it as something doable, it's amazing how quickly you'll get it. Starting on the bass clef will be interesting and I'll be intrigued to hear about your progress.

Peace

Ken,
Don't ask me why, but I actually find it easier to read the bass clef. I think that may be because I sometimes use PVG music to help me learn bass parts to some songs. Necessity is the mother of invention after all!

I'm used to singing bass in the choir, so the bass clef's no problem. It's that terrible clef that's more challenging.

I showed the book to a guitar shop owner/manager. He had it for about 2 hours and, when I went to collect it, his first comment was a very enthusiastic "That's a really good book".
David, check your PMs, please.
