    The Billy Sheehan Bass Technique is a usefull insight into his 3 three finger picking, harmonics, and tapping techniques.

    I have the Jeff Berlin video.. there is some good info. but overall the video is pretty weak. He has wrestler Roddy Piper appear and the guy from Robo Cop. it's a complete waste of time when he could teaching something useful. His playing is amazing though.

    I also have the beaver video..to put it nicely it SUCKS..I didn't really learn anything from it.

    i second getting the jaco dvd...but for various reasons. Its not acctually a great dvd it terms of an in your face play this play that type video. Its more like an evening in a relaxed enviroment with a great bassplayer giving insights into what makes him tick and showing you some of his tricks. Its so damn interesting to watch and enjoy..and just to hear him play and comment on why he does what he does. On a more sobering note this was one of the last times he acctually got it together to do something positive before he acctually slid back into the world of drink and drugs ...and his demise.....this video is an historical document that every aspiring bassplayer should take time out to watch. Some of it will rub off. You will not be dissapointed.
