"I'm not a guitar or bass player nor do I have the skill, patience, desire, or ability to play any musical instrument. This is a review by a parent who observed results from their kid watching/using this DVD.
We bought this DVD for my step-son. He's 13 and has been playing the regular guitar off and on for the last year or so. He's had a couple of formal lessons. For Christmas he got a bass guitar. After 2 weeks of listening to a beginners version of "Cat Scratch Fever" 30-40x a day, we ordered this DVD. Within a week he had completed the DVD and was tired of it. After the week of watching it, he was playing some new songs (the word playing is used loosely here) and was able to play the chords he picked up from the DVD. He also started learning tab which he claims to have picked up from this DVD. He's actually able to listen to a song, pick out the bass lines and play a version of it. It's pretty amazing to me how much he's improved in two weeks.
I'd highly recommend this DVD to any parent who has a kid learning to play the bass. I'm sure it'll provide value to anyone who is interested in learning to play the bass. We've now ordered the Metal Bass 2 DVD - hopefully it'll provide more improvements."
