Well I've been messing around with the bass for around a year teaching myself with books and tab. I finally got motivated and decided to get a teacher once a week. I picked this guy because he claims to be a bass-player who can teach other instruments also and I didn't want to learn bass from a guitar teacher who knew a little on bass. I hope everything goes well, he said most of his instruction will start with old blues lines, and that sounds pretty good to me. I'm going to make sure I get as much theory out of it as possible. Only $15 a session I figure it is well worth a shot. Here is to hoping.
