    Hello, I've been playing the bass guitar for a few years now and I think I hit a wall in my playing. I'm looking for some inspiration. I'd love to know what online resources have you all come across that have been really insightful? What are some of the best bass lessons online that you've come across? I'm hoping from the responses that there will be some diamonds that I haven't come across yet!

    I've tried a few of the sites mentioned by others, however the only site I use, and am a paid lifetime member of is Joe Hubbard. His study material is the best IMO and experience.

    Just to throw my few cents here, I bought time on most of the popular bass lessons online and find that while the content they teach is pretty close, their delivery is very different. For me personally, I spent a few hours on each site and preferred TalkingBass.net and Bassbuzz.com. (as a side note, TalkingBass's format of selling small video series vs month subscription is a huge pro, Bassbuzz and Ari's site also do this).

    While I really enjoy Scott's videos and lessons, the site felt like it was almost too much information, leading me to spend more time searching than getting to practice.

    Joe Hubbard’s are the most advanced I’ve seen.

    Anything by Rich Brown is A+++ too

    Another vote for Mark Smith @ TalkingBass.com.
    Straightforward, well organized, structured, linear. I like the purchase once, keep forever model. His printed materials (.pdf) are excellent as well.

    Here is the link
    Joe Hubbard Bass
    He also has a lot of videos on YouTube. You may want to take a look at those to see if you like his teaching style. Not the cheapest, but it was what I was looking for, and I have improved a lot since joining. Good luck!

    I don't know how to read music or tab. Are these courses mentioned above still of use to me?

    If you can read numbers you can read TAB?
