My grandson is interested in learning how to play the bass. I offered to help get him started - but have never taught anyone how to play. Heck, I'm a late bloomer myself and didn't begin until my early 40s. Still feel like a beginner myself in many ways! I have some ideas but would appreciate suggestions on the best way to structure this experience. I'll take him as far as I can before recommending a professional teacher. I thought I'd begin by spending several hours together listening to music he likes, showing him how the bass contributes to that music, give him a sense of what it's like to hold the bass, pluck it, etc. and get a lay of the land before diving into a curriculum. I think it's important for him to consider the bigger picture and whether he truly wants to commit to the journey. Anyway - enough of that. Suggestions are welcome! Thanks! P.S. this young man is a mathematical genius .... extremely analytical. Like other kids he plays computer games for hours, but also other types of competitive (physical) card games against multiple players at the same time - and beats all of them. So his mind is like a computer. Not sure if that info is important but wanted to mention it.
