I'm beginner bassist and I'm going to study bass from 0 level to highest I will be able. There are tons and tons of video,text,audio lessons in internet and you just need to type some "magic" word and you will have any lesson. But there is a problem I'm trying to solve by this thread. I studied guitar before and by this things I learnt much but still had very big mess in my head and hands. I tried to learn everything youtube showed me and that made me to fail in many things. Now when I become full time bassist and put the guitar away I don't want to do the same misstake. I'm asking Beggin' to experienced bassists and teachers on this great forum to write down program from start to advanced. I'm not asking for lessons I'm just asking for lesson names to know what to learn first and what second. If someone does that I will be thankful whole of my life!

I would send you to two places: www.studybass.com
and the book Bass Guitar for Dummies.
Dummies will start with how to hold the bass, how to tune it, how to get sound from it, how to mute some of the sound, i.e. take you right from the beginning all the way to intermediate player. Your local library may have a copy.
Start on page (screen) number 1 and don't skip pages.
