Yes, I have been playing bass for about 14 years. I believe a total beginner would have a hard time with this course. Aside from the intro lessons, the material ramps up quite quickly and would be confusing unless a brand new student had someone to guide them through. Nothing against the course -- there's only so much you can do with remote lessons like this for someone who knows nothing about the subject. On the other hand, if you've got some experience with electric bass and are looking for a way to organize and accelerate your progress, and want a DVD-style instruction program, this is the course to get.
