a very good start will be to listen to bassists of your fav songs and get your influences.

some people say: "Oh, bass is just a second guitar."

Bullshit! It's an art, man.

bass isn't just about playing roots in 4ths or 8ths. it's about setting the groove for the whole band. remember! there is no proper band w/o the bass!

good influences are stuart hamm, sting, jack bruce, or any other bassist that does the bass parts that u like.

doing exercises/drills on your fingerboard also keeps your fingers strong and make sure that your pinky is used.

go to sites like or the bass survival 101 from

i might try out a few lessons from he music clef in suntec too. i've been to their trial lesson and so far it seems good.
