I learned to play as a kid, 7th grade I think. Played for a long time and got reasonably good. Ended up in with a regular playing gig in a wedding/bar-mitzvah type band and finally burned out. This would have been in '89. Went off college and life intervened. My bass has sat in it's gig bag ever since. I pulled it out and am getting interested in relearning. There's a lot of good info on the board here, but I'm having trouble finding what I'm looking for. Maybe I just suck at searching . Anyway, I'm thinking it's time to relearn how to play. I have no chops left, but do remember the basics. Anyone have a good suggestion on a book or something that will help me get back to some level of competency? I went by a local shop today but didn't have a great deal of time. May go back over tomorrow afternoon if the schedule permits and ask some questions. I did get my hands on a lovely Rickenbacker and the feel was outstanding. Also checked out a new Fender Jazz, but the neck shape didn't work so well with my small hands. If I stick with it, I'll have to start looking for a new bass! Thanks for reading and any advice you may offer to returning player.
