First off thanx for being a contributing artist at TB. I was wondering if you've done session work, and what your timeline is regarding being a bassist. Band experiences that has brought you to where you are today. Second question which I need help with. Ive been playing bass a few years now(its my second time). My playing was mostly covers and some originals in the Metal/Alternative/Funk category. I can play the songs well and they are somewhat challenging as far as Rock goes. But I have no theory, and would like to get to the point of playing all the ideas I have my head. Now i know the standard answer is find a good teacher. Well Ive looked and they are of the standard burnt out metal head types. What do I do to progress?? Thanx.
