Hi there, I'm sure this topic's been asked many times with respects to instructors and so on. I am starting to learn the bass now, have been dabbling with books, metronomes and jamming with others whenever I can for the past couple months. I am ready to take the next step and do some lessons with an instructor. I would like to know some opinions on the idea of group lessons. How do they work? Do they work like they did in high school where the instructor mandated what was played and half the class is disinterested and takes a half-hearted stab at playing? I have played piano as a boy and guitar as a teenager and am now 23. I by no means care too much about age. I think group lessons would bring that "playing with others" aspect into it that's all so reccommended! I love jamming with others, it brings the FUN level straight to the roof for me! I get so excited, I can't sit still, all smiles, and cherishes putting in the runs when I sense a break!(especially with my buddy) I've also played with older folks where I keep it simple and have just as much fun! What have been your experiences? Cheers!
