    I just got this from another TB'er, have viewed the whole thing, and while it's a great video with no flaws in the tape that I can recall seeing, it's not as good for me as the Stockton video I already have.

    So, here we go...

    John Myung Progressive Bass Concepts (VHS) $15 shipped to your door (Retail: $25 + tax and/or shipping) . Includes exercise booklet.
