The thing that's REALLY gonna advance your bass playing capability is to find a REAL LIVE TEACHER who, even though they may not be famous, will be able to communicate the basics of music to you in a way that deals with your specific strengths and weaknesses as a player. There is no book, video, or website in the world that can listen to you play, week after week, and give you specific exercise to address problems.
No TV in the world can look at you play and suggest a different approach to fingering based on your physiognomy, or that you still have too much tension in your left wrist etc.
Get a live person, you won't regret it.
