That said, I tried it (having no prior bass experience) and found it to be a reasonable start. Less time is spent on the fundamentals and more time is spent covering a wide subject range... For example, does a first time bassist really need to learn how to slap and pop when you don't know what a chord is?? Hmmm...
This is much better than just a CD or VHS tape, but it won't turn you into Les Claypool.
