I'm just starting out, been playing about a week. I'm using the website Studybass.com as a guide and supplement since i can't spare the dough for a teacher right now. I'm trying to take it slowly through the lessons and then after practicing them for a while I move on and work on learning a song or practicing previous things I've learned on the website. My problem is I feel like I don't know where all this is leading or what my goals should be. I have plenty of free time. Usually 4+ hours a day I can dedicate to practicing. Overall I guess I just feel a bit overwhelmed.
