    So, I've been playing bass for about 10 years now, and I'm starting to grow out of the whole "rock star" motif and I'm sure I have some pretty bad habits. I've been trying to find a teacher around here, but they are all guitar teachers who teach bass for beginners. I was just wondering if you guys know of any literature that could help me. Videos would be appreciated too.

    What exactly do you want to work on ? When you say "bad habits" I assume you mean technique ? If so, is it L/H, R/H or both ?

    A little more information would help. :)

    Technique lessons are best learned from a person in my opinion. Do you know any other respectable bass players? They don't necessarily have to be teachers to give you a couple technique lessons.

    I could suggest a pile of books but since I don't what your trying to improve I would just be randomly suggesting stuff.

    Mostly my right hand (I'm a righty by the way). My left hand is pretty good, I mean I have no problem with moving around the fret board. I would just like some technique training I guess.

    A good start would be to read through the stickys at the top of this forum.
