A photograph

Discussion in 'Jazz Technique [DB]' started by trajectory fish, Jan 5, 2006.

  1. My mom asked for a photo of myself playing bass, so I took this earlier today. Just thought I'd share, as not much else is going on around here before school starts again. Mods, feel free to move/ delete this if I put it in the wrong place. Any tips on technique or posture are welcome, as its been about 16 months since my most recent lesson. :bag:

    NOPE. Don't depend on some dumb cluck online looking at a picture. Put yourself in front of someone who is able to work directly with you, to evaluate your strengths and your needs, keep you from hurting yourself and make sure you're not re-inventing the wheel.

    Get a teacher.
  3. Thanks for the reply, I am working on getting a teacher.

    Maybe I did put this in the wrong place, as I mainly just thought it was a nice picture. :meh:
