you could access studybass.com, activebass.com, cyberfretbass.com for any details;
Since you want to try learning dirty loops you could also search for tabs of their songs and install guitarpro in your pc.

Song Surgeon Pro will slow down songs, has a 31 band eq built in to help isolate the bass and will record anything that plays through your speakers. I have it and it works very well.

I think it's asking a lot of yourself to jump straight into Wooten, Sheehan, and Miller as a beginner. That's like learning to drive on a tractor-trailer. I would focus on learning scales first. Learn how to play through them across the entire fretboard, first slow, then fast. Once you can run through scales at speed you'll find it's a lot easier to follow fast bass lines. From there you can go on to modes, chords, etc. Also, this book is great for exercises if you can get a copy in the Philippines... http://www.amazon.com/Bass-Fitness-E.../dp/0793502489
