    Since I'll be getting my hands on a shiny new bass soon, I figured I should seriously consider the lessons thing since it isn't something I ever did with guitar.

    Is there anyone on the TB forums in the Glendale Arizona area willing to teach me? I'm new to the area so I don't know anyone on this side of the country that plays.

    Thanks to anyone who takes the time to read this!

    I live in Glendale, not sure if I'd qualify myself to give you lessons but depending on your level I know several people around the valley that could help you out.

    Edit: What are your goals with the bass? You played guitar before but no lessons?

    I'm going to be taking a lesson with Michael Singer on the 26th. My goals are just be the best I can be. I have never had lessons for guitar so I figured I'd try to start off on the right track with bass and dive right into lessons.

    Martin, Where in Glendale are you?

    I got my bass last night... Holy **** I'm not used to it. Stretches are hard as hell. Martin, what would you charge for lessons

    If you just want to jam this weekend and see where you're at that's cool,no charge. If you're interested still $15/30 min.

    Problem is, I don't have a bass amp. My 'amp' for the moment is Rocksmith and computer speakers.

    That's not really a problem, what part of town are you? It's a 4-string?

    Yes, its a 4 string. Im' at 109th and northern, but I work just off of 51st and camelback, so you're right along my way.

    That's a very cool bass. If you want to meet some time tomorrow I have a fairly open schedule, just let me know what's good for you. I would rather meet at your place at least initially so I can see what you're working with and maybe be able to tweak it so it'd be more enjoyable for you.

    Tomorrow isn't going to be any good unfortunately. Everyone is getting out to go riding quads/shoot guns in the desert. Would anytime next week work for you?

    Yeah, shouldn't be an issue, you have a pretty set schedule? Message me on here and we can try and get something set up.
