Evolving Bassist Millennium Edition - by Rufus Reid. Edited by Ed Gutstein. Fretted instrument method/supplement (bass guitar). 191 pages.

This edition marks the 26 years in publication, as "the Standard" in bass method books. Through the years since this book was first published, Rufus began to feel that a major revision was needed. The fundamental material has been kept intact because classic concepts do not change. This new edition includes more transcriptions from his recorded solos, original compositions arranged as duets, new etudes and additional ways to learn tunes and conceive better bass lines.
