    I work nights, so its hard to find lessons that fit my schedule. It would be really wonderful to be able to use software, or something similar, at home to learn/improve my bass skills. I have read the threads regarding emedia's bass software, but I have also seen it mentioned elsewhere on the forums and online, and I have gotten mixed reviews. So, is there ANY bass learning software people would recommend? Or sets of software?

    Theory and some practice stuff from what I remember.
    Geared more towards piano but the principle is the same.

    eMedia is for the absolute beginner. Not much theory in the software I have from them. Bass Magic is probably the best & most versatile software program I've seen by far.

    Others:
    Play Bass
    Fretboard Warrior
    MusikEd.com

    Hope this helps.
