Comments about Hal Leonard Beginning Funk Bass (DVD):
This video is not an instructional video, it made a mild attempt to be but wound up being a rather long video of him showing off his very odd style of bass.He spends more time describing his unorthodox methods of playing compared to other funk players than actually teaching. If you want to learn a new way to play funk, it might be ok, or if you are a fan wanting to see more of his style it would be great. But if you just want an intro into funk, this is not the video to buy.I recomend "Slap Bass,The Ultimate Guide" for a good DVD with demos & drills for all levels of bass player.
