    I play like poo with my left hand, so if I have any tips about playing with your left hand then you basically want to do the exact opposite! ;)

    But seriously, you just have to practice, practice, practice until your brain doesn't have to think about controlling your left hand's playing, it just does it automatically. Practice playing scales, chords, arpeggios, and bass lines with your left hand, especially scales in all the different keys so you get the fingering down.

    You can also check out the following videos (disclaimer: I haven't watched any of them yet myself so I can't vouch for them):
