so, I had my first lesson like a week ago, and I had been having trouble with my elbow feeling weird.. got it checked out and the doc thinks I have golfers elbow.. ANYWAYS, so I'm starting to think about the things he taught me (and practice again), but then I remembered, my goal for practice was to try to transcribe miles davis' solo part in the song "so what". I'm super intimidated by this and wondering if anybody has some advice? is this good practice for a bass beginner? I feel like I might just waste a lot of time because the solos are very long (and he has a few solos). I don't really know what to make of my first lesson.. He also taught me some chord shapes (in which I totally forgot, but I think I can look em up online somewhere..) on the flip, he did help me with my hand technique , and got me motivated to learn the names of the notes / finding other major scale shapes.. does my teacher sound nuts? or should I just give it a go..he says all the greats start out with this exercise, but it seems really intense!!
