I'm a new member, so I'll apologize in advance if this has been gone over a lot already here. I tried searching the forum but could not find a thread for this (though I am sure there are many). I am new to the bass, but have played mandolin, tenor guitar, and (some years ago) guitar. Are there any learning resources (on-line, print, dvd, or other) that are particularly recommended to help me to establish a decent technique and a proper approach to learning the instrument from the start? Since my primary instruments (tenor guitar & mandolin) are tuned in 5th, and it's been a while since I played guitar, I'm looking for something that will ease the transition back to an instrument tuned in 4th. Also, since the right hand technique on the bass is so different from what I'm used to, I'd like some good pointers there. Thanks very much in advance.
