    Since my bass teachers in school know nothing about slap and similar techniques i'm thinking of getting some dvd's. I found 2 dvd's that looks interesting and have an ok pricetag:

    New dimensions for bass feat. Doug Wimbish
    Slap bass: The ultimate guide feat. Ed Friedland

    Are they ok or just something to waste money on?

    Ed Freidland's DVD is the best instructional DVD I've seen. It is well thought out, well filmed, and well organized. Explanations are clear. Navigation is a snap. I'm not very interested in slap, so I picked it up just to get some ideas. It's a shame that more instruction materials are not of this quality.

    True, anything by Ed Friedland is great stuff, he really puts out the good instructional stuff.

    Since i'm not much into slapping i went with the Doug Wimbish DVD, unfortunately they didn't had it in stock at the local store so they had to order it from the UK so i have to wait a month for it.

    If i'm not satisfied with the dvd, i'm definetly checking out that Ed friedland dvd :)
