For anyone on the fence about doing skype lessons...seriously...JUST DO IT. I've been playing stringed instruments for a long time and have done thousands of gigs. I never really got the right training though. After meeting Anthony at camp last year I decided to try and "start over" beginning of this year, studying via skype with Ant. It has been frustrating, humbling, stimulating, and exhilarating all at the same time. Most importantly, things are starting to make sense with the instrument. When I switched from guitar to bass back in '87 I knew that I'd finally found my voice after decades of playing other instruments. But working with Anthony, I now am starting to be able to actually say something meaningful with that voice. Really. He is that good, and it can change your playing, and by extension, your life. It's never too late to start (I'll be 51 later this month).
