Hi
So I've been playing guitar a few years ( self taught)
And I've invested in a bass and amp
What websites,books ,DVDs, do yourecommend for a bass beginner?
Thanks for you help :-)

The Hal Leonard books are generally pretty good, Tabs tend to be accurate although sometimes simplified, which isn't a bad thing when you are new to an instrument. I started out with these: http://www.halleonard.com/search/search.do?subsiteid=7&keywords=fast+track+bass&searchcategory=00

Youtube and UG are your friends. Just type in <songname> bass and you'll usually come up with something.

Paul Wolfe does decent quality lessons based on learning bass by learning songs, nice, clear and slow. http://www.how-to-play-bass.com/songs-group.html

Scott Devine is worth a look, more theory based and aimed at a slightly more advanced player but approachable and stimulating lessons. https://www.youtube.com/user/devinebass

Welcome to the deep side

Learn your major and minor scales, and learn their intervals, and what that means. It will help in the long run.

Genuinely? Youtube.

I recommend a guy named Scott with a channel called "Scott's Bass Lessons"

Edit: If you like what you find there, I HIGHLY advise checking out his site. Tons of great stuff for all levels.
