ok I live about an hour from nashville and I've decided to get a teacher to teach technique (tapping mostly,but also double thumbing,and other slap techniques)...I really wanna take lessons from Reggie "the teacha" Wooten...but driving a total of 2 hours for a 30minute bass lesson would be a pain...esp, when I don't have that great of a car...I would take lessons around here, but there are NO good bass teachers...i went to one guy for a month and I ended up teaching him stuff...WASTE OF MONEY!! I am completely self taught. Would it be benificial to make the trek to Reg or try to learn the techniques on my own? also has anyone had any experience with Wooten? thanks.
