    This is the videos i have:

    -Larry graham super solo bass, havent wacthed the whole, and it's not instructional.

    -Louis Johnson 20licks, haven't watched the whole either or learned anything from it yet since it's on my comp, and i think the licks is a bit wankery.

    -Alex sklaervski's the slap bass program, think it's pretty good, i learned the proper way to slap out of it and got some inspiration, thumbs up for this one but it's kinda expensive.

    -The art of tapping, well i learned to do some cross-string tapping and how to single string tap and a little chordal but i found this video pretty bad, i wich he could go way deeper into single-string tapping and showing alot of excercises for the right hand...

    -Stu hamm vol 1, haven't watched it properly yet but it might be good..

    I've started to slap alot now and really like it but my tapping is very weak and i'm about to give it up, i cant get my pinky and ring finger work together and i have really bad phrasing, i can do the peanuts theme and eruption but nothing more... i know it takes time but i've been doing excercises to make my right hand stronger 1 hour a day for 2 weeks and i still cant get my fingers work good together.

    Anyway, i might sell the videos i already have and buy new for inspiration and learning new techniques.

    So, suggestion? It can be anything.

    Billy Sheehan's new Advanced Bass DVD is amazing.

    You want inspiration?
    Check Joni Mitchel's Shadow&light with Jaco.
    Then for great live performance of a band with a great drummer check out Sir Paul's Back in the the U.S.A.
    That will make you play bass.
