    Hi all,

    I have plenty of instructional books and CDs, but the only instructional DVD in my collection is the ubiquitous Flea - Bass Jamming & Techniques.

    My bag is very much in the funk genre, or anything that has groove :D

    I want to _see_ my idols in action, but I simply don't know who has recorded instructional videos, or where to purchase them from in the UK.

    Also, I would be interested in what you all regard as essential viewing so far as live/concert recordings go.

    I wondered if anyone had any recommendations and tips as to where I can buy these elusive recordings. I had a quick search through this forum and couldn't find what I was looking for, but apologies if I missed it.

    Thanks for your help!

    Google is your friend.

    This is an instructional dvd - no concert footage. S'fun to watch! Always figgered this guy would be more ... how should I say ... overly serious. But he's not. Very folksy and funny, at least IMVHO.

    Also Victor Wooten and Steve Bailey have a couple of instruction dvds out.

    hope this helps! peace out, -Ryco <%+

    There's a good video of Curtis Mayfield live in the early 90's. I can't remember who the bass player is but he had excellant tone/technique.

    Thanks for the tips everyone.

    I'm deffy getting that Louis Johnson vid :D I take it this Google Video clip is taken from his tutorial:


    If so, I hope the DVD comes packaged with some giant comedy glasses, just for authenticity.

    And Jaco...why on earth didn't I know he'd made an instructional video? Play.com says it will be arriving on my doorstep some time tomorrow :bassist:
