Hi everyone! I am a beginner bassist, and I am really trying to learn. I've been looking at some stuff posted online and I have been trying to practice some of the things posted in the "Free lessons" thread at the top of this forum. I still feel lost though. I'd like to learn a few things before I go out and get an official lesson....do you have any suggestions for a book or a DVD that has good step by step instructions for learning? I have little to no musical experience so I feel lost. Suggestions?
