                so either books or online lessons would be my choices, what do you guys recommend?.


                Whether it's books or the net, I would recommend mastering good technique for a start. Apart from being able to get the most from your playing, having good technique will help prevent you from having physical problems later. Learn it now, before bad habits develop. Search for R/H and L/H technique on You Tube. A great all round site for bass is : www.studybass.com
