Mastering the Electric Bass Vol 1 is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 2 .
Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Not for beginners , maybe not for intermediate players. This guy has serious technique which is fine but the material covered is for players who know notes names all of the fretboard and are interested in advanced material, full fretboard scales and modes. Not for those who want to improve some and maybe learn some new songs.

Rated 1.0 out of 5 by from Ancient VHS 90s stuff with a seriously long wanky solo to start. Skip the first four minutes of the first video. In fact, skip the first video,. tune your bass, and start at the second one. The rest of the series is fine.
