Good bass tutorials

I find that my Yamaha BB and my Squier short scale don't really need a lot of left-hand pressure. My kit J-bass needs a bit but the neck is also a lot chunkier. I gave up trying to muscle through heavy gauges - it's just not worth it even though I have strong hands.
I started with a Sandberg bass for some years, now I own and love my Fender Roscoe Beck V modell. But yes, they're quite chunky!
Do you play with pick mostly, then? I more or less never play with a pick, so I can't even do it properly.

I mainly play with fingers (teeheehee) but will bring out a pick sometimes when it's called for. Being a (bad) guitarist a pick isn't really an issue...

So you need to find online tutorials for guitar :p.
I just dont think melodically. I have scale, chord, and songbooks for guitar. When I pick up a guitar however, I'm still thinking like a drummer. So 3 or 4 note rhythms that would sound better on a bass anyhow.
