What bass magazines would be worth having a subscription of?

    I am wondering on starting a subscription on maybe Bass Player Magazine, but would it be worth it, or are there other better alternatives.

    I am both interested interviews with famous bass players, gear reviews, just basically getting informed and updated on what is going on in terms of bass, specifically electric bass, over the world, but also in terms of lessons.

    Regarding lessons it would be important for me that tab is included too, cause while I sort of am capable of spelling my way through traditional standard notation, I can't really read anywhere near fluently.

    Cause while Lessons wouldn't be the primary reason to keep the magazine though at all, it still would be nice to be able to actually make use of the lessons they do offer.

    The internet is full of everything you seek.

    If you want to subscribe, Talkbass is a good starting point ;)

    Yep. Lot's of free stuff on the net, but it's fun to get stuff in the mail, so I wouldn't scoff if you got a Bass Player subscription.

    P.S. Take the time to learn standard notation. You'll thank me later.

    I still take Bass Player. It has its pluses and minuses, but I still like a print magazine. All the lessons do have tabs as well as standard notation.
