Several of you advised me to get the the Interactive Bass software for a good self teaching study. This program really sounds great and I am now looking for it but only seem to find it on the net and not in music stores. Will continue to search but if anyone has this program out there and is interested in parting with it let me know and we can talk about it. I am sure someone must have this software and is through with it and would like to recoupe some of the dollars put into it. Once again thanks for all the info and advice.
