    Besides a teacher, what are some good dvd's, books, learning tools, etc. that would teach me to play the bass guitar? I don't read music either, so I guess that will be pretty important, too :laugh:

    No, you're definitely not a dummy. :laugh:

    Just learn Louie Louie and then take it from there. Everything else is just a variation.
