    Or do you know what videos are most useful on youtube? Because I always find some, just nothing I'm really looking for.

    Not necessarily bass-specific, but I'm in love with the Jordan Rudess Online Conservatory. He's the keyboardist for Dream Theater, went to Julliard at age 9. Now he's got his online school with instruction for keyboard, guitar, and drums. Left-hand keyboard stuff, plus guitar theory, plus Dave Muscato's thread on here about his time at Berklee Bass Lines, has given me a very well rounded approach to my practice time.

    If you like funk/r&b then check out marlowedk either on youtube or his own site at playbassnow.com.

    In the same vein, type in Doug Johns in tube and he has some cool lessons up there.

    I took three levels of slap bass from Anthoy Wellington ( AWESOME!) at www.musicdojo.com

    +1. Great play-alongs! And a very nice guy, willing to answer questions that I was afraid might be considered "dumb."

    Just stumbled upon this ooold post...

    Yeah, definitely, there's good stuff on StudyBass and PlayBassNow.
    But by far my favorite online resource is Scott Devine's http://scottsbasslessons.com

    Sorry I can't give you a coupon code: it's FREE! Awesome AND free! Plus you get even more free stuff if you subscribe to his newsletter.

    Cool guy, great teacher, awesome lessons! That said, some may prefer someone else's "style", my taste is not universal --thanks God! But it's definitely worth a look if you don't know it.

    Hope this helps!

    Kevin here with JamPlay.com. We've always been the best for online guitar lessons and we just now launched our online bass lessons. We are pretty pumped with what we've put together. Check out the site and see what you think. Just like with our guitar site, if you join & decide it's not for you, just let us know and we'll give you a full refund!

    The trufire ,stu hamm lessons along with scottsbasslessons, how-to-playbass.com and studybass are all you need, along with talkbass of course. The trufire lessons really are top notch, same for scotts.

    Wow...must be Devine intervention (LOL)...as I have gravitated to these same online courses. Have yet to check out trufire, though.
