    Howdy.

    A friend of mine suggested that I buy an instructional video to help improve my technique.

    If so, what do you suggest I get?

    IS there one that's well known that i should be on the lookout for?

    or do i buy one based on my particular style?

    just need some tips i guess.

    thanks.

    They're usually tailored to a specific technique or player. But for general technique tips, the Michael Manring "Bass Essentials" and Mark Egan "Bass Workshop" videos are good.

    I think Rocco Prestia's "Fingerstyle Funk" is a pretty good resource. Best of all, most principles that Rocco explains apply to other styles of music too.
