So.. Long story short. Ive been playing bass for 20 years now.. self-taught (more or less) and struggling with a non-existent understanding of theory, an unreliable and untrained ear and other deficiencies known and unknown. Ive been playing for a long time and Ive got some chops and can technically move across the fret board as long as Im playing covers or inside my extremely narrow comfort zone. I want to make the move from hack bass player to Musician. My options being limited to bass lessons for daddy or horseback riding and dance lessons for my girls have led me to consider purchasing self-study coursework. There's always been some reason why I didn't take more lessons, but I've got do something. I've been looking at some of the books online and I'm extremely curious about Carol Kaye's products and style. I know that Ed Friedland is highly regarded but I think I'm interested in Carols approach. My question is if Carol Kaye's system is geared towards people with a working knowledge of theory? I don't have that, but I'd like to start the journey. Id love to hear from other bass players that have been in my position and escaped years and years of mediocrity. A passion for the bass guitar and time on the instrument are all I've got right now and I want more.
