Thank you! That was exactly what I was looking for. I am working through the lessons on Rocksmith 2014, which I also got for Christmas in addition to my new bass, but thought I would want more. I am a guitarist already so do have knowledge of chords and scales and some rhythm stuff from a guitar perspective. But I wanted to learn good technique from the beginning with bass, rather than have to correct things later as I did with guitar.
So glad I just found this post. I just got Rocksmith 2014 and my new bass, but felt like it was just teaching me how to memorize what I see on screen instead of really "teaching" me so I decided to look here for any beginner tips before posting.
