Pros: Smooth playing, very nice licks and great tone. Thoughtful tab is included as well.

Cons: Can't tell what his fretting hand is doing. He can play anyway he likes since he's an artist. But for this video he's a teacher so he should try not to obscure his fingerings. Doing so defeats the purpose of buying the video since you can't see what is going on.

Cons: None of the licks are played at half speed. Every thing is at speed then on to the next groove. Most instructional videos of this type would have each lick played twice with one being much slower than the normal speed to focus on timing.

This would be better off in book form with a lot more licks. He's not taking advantage of the DVD medium but charging DVD prices. Should be a book at half the price.

I have been playing the bass for 20 years for my own satisfaction. I’ve taken one bass lesson at Drummers Collective in NYC and everything else I’ve learned from DVDs such as the one produced by Jerry Barnes. This DVD is one of the best funk bass lessons I have ever taken. I am totally satisfied. Yes, there is no slow pace, no this isn’t a step by step learning session. Use your ears, your heart and your eyes. Do you know how many times I sat in “The Blue Note” studying Victor Wooten s’ left hand technique, listening and watching his every move? I learned a lot and you can too by viewing Jerry Barnes and this fantastic DVD.
