Book III Standard Line is for the bass player wanting to dig deeper into jazz bass playing and jazz harmony. Standard Lines has many advanced jazz walking bass techniques all notated using bass tab and standard notation. It is recommended to use the exercises to learn to read music. Practice the exercise using the bass tab and once familiar, apply that knowledge to learning to read the standard notation. Its really not that difficult, and can open many doors. Standard lines goes deeper into how to construct walking bass lines with examples using modes from major and melodic minor harmony. Having a strong understanding of these concepts will enable the bassist to build strong bass lines in any musical setting. While working on expanding your technique I highly recommend trying to work on some piano chops. This is great for ear training and being able to recognize chord sequences and root movement. These skills will also help you to become a better transcriber.
