I posted part of this comment in another topic but wanted to post it as a whole new thread to get a wider response to it. Also I wasn't sure which area to ask this in so I put it in here. The 'click' I am asking about means the light bulb goes on over my head and I get how to play and could jam/improvise with others even if I didn't know a song. Like saying, "playing music just 'clicks' for you". Remember in the movie Back to the Future where Marty gets up on stage in 1955 and plays Chuck Berry yet the other musicians have never ever heard the song (because it didn't exist yet) but they still played along because Marty told them it was a blues riff in B and to watch him for the changes. That's how I want to be able to play and the 'click' I am looking for. I feel like I haven't gotten that 'click' that other people have that enables them know how to pick up and just simply jam along with other players even if they don't know how to play a particular song or are just improvising/playing whatever comes to mind. I have learned the basics and some fundamentals like scales and chords (although I am not sure I'm doing the chords right buts a start) and I know the notes on the guitar/bass. I know how to keep a rhythm. Not the greatest at counting while playing. Basically I rely on feel to get me there. I know the three chord progression I-IV-V. Well for guitar I do, not sure if it is the same deal on the bass. Another thing, I can't read music for guitar/bass. I can for other instruments such as piano/trumpet/trombone, ect. But I can read tablature. For me just learning songs doesn't really help because honestly I know a bunch of rock and metal songs or at least parts of them and I still don't feel like I know how to play better or play like the pro's. I need more in depth teaching or something I can learn that will help me to be able to play good enough to be able to pick up and jam with other players and not play like I don't have a clue what I am doing. Ya know many of the pro bass players or guitar players that we hear today did not start out as the pro guys they are now. But they learned their instrument and basically had that 'click' and they could play well enough to jam with others and play a few songs and get them started. Over the years they have developed their playing. a little example, Eddie Van Halen can't count in music to save his life, Yet he knows how to play very well and play with a band. He found that 'click' that allows him to play even if he can't count or read music, ect. I need to find that same 'click' and so far no one has been able to get me there. If anyone can get me there I'd be really appreciative of it.
