Jason, the instructor, is sincere and easy to follow. It appears he is producing this DVD himself. I have just started with the program so more comments are sure to follow.

Initially, I had thought there was a missing lesson. All eight lessons are included. It is the labeling scheme that makes the trouble. Chapter 3 has Week 2. Chapter 8 has Week 7, etc. There is no Chapter 9. The chapter that has Week 8 does not show up on Windows Explorer. Using Media Player 11, Week 8 shows up as Chapter 1 of Title 2. Seems like a complicated way to solve a simple problem.

The lessons themselves cover about ten minutes each. Within each lesson, Jason shows tablature for the exercises for each lesson. The tabs and other info are in .sxc format rather than the widely used .pdf. Jason includes the program for Open Office 1 which will display the .sxc files. One file alone with this program is over 132,000 kb. This is many times larger than the whole set of tabs would be in .pdf. If the files were in .pdf, the user would not have to add yet another uncommon program. This is another case of using a complicated way to solve a simple problem.

For the price, though, an excellent bargain. I will give it four stars, primarily for the quality of the lessons themselves but minus one for the technical errors. Credit Jason though. He is working to solve the problems and I am sure he will succeed.

This is a bass guitar course for folks who don't like to mess around. It gets right to the lessons with little if any needless banter from the talented instructor. It's broken up into eight "weeks" or lessons, designed to get you up and playing in said amount of weeks. I find if you study each lesson for a few weeks to a month you will get more from them. All told, this is a solid, well laid out approach to learning the basics of playing a bass guitar, and you can't ask for more for the price. Try this one out, you won't be disappointed.

I was quite impressed by the content of this DVD. Jason seems to have a real passion for teaching others and is quite thorough, yet to the point, which makes things easy to understand for the beginning learner. I appreciate the time and effort he has obviously put into this, which will (hopefully) allow for this mother of four to fulfill her dream of being able to play the bass guitar. I like that, with this DVD, I am able to practice at home without having to spend time and money on a private tutor. One thing that I feel would be an improvement, however, would be a slowed-down repeat at the end of the lesson, showing what to practice for the week. I found myself skipping back on the DVD a few times during the lesson to make sure I was doing it correctly. Keep in mind, that I am completely new at playing bass, so I am sure that I will gain confidence and get better/faster with practice.

I have just begun the program and will edit my review if my opinion changes once I have completed it.

I see how this could be good for someone at the very beginning stages of playing the bass, for myself I'm just a couple of notches above that and it was too elementary. I watched about the first 3-4 lessons (weeks) and realized it was not for me. I did send it back to Amazon within 2 days and was charged a 50%restocking fee, read the return policy, my bad! Knowing that I should have kept it and given it away, live and learn. For Jason Shepard, I think the camera position could have been placed better to see your fingers more easily
