    I took lessons during the Summer, and I knew I had a lot of shortcomings as a mainly by ear self taught bassist. What shocked me was how bad my time was when playing by myself. My teacher told me to give up tapping my foot and get a metronome.

    The funny thing is that I lock in fine with drummers.

    For one of my grade exams for bass I got 2/10 marks for melodic recall, which was basically listen to a track and play it from ear about 30s later. Didn't realise my ear was that bad, as on the rest of the exam I near enough aced it!
