When we think of the "Masters of Bass Guitar" several names may come to mind. Jaco, Abraham Laboriel, Geddy Lee, etc. The question I pose is this. Is practice and proper instruction all that is required to be a Bass Legend, to attain that high caliber ablilty? Or is there something more. I here about and have even been told that when it comes to music I am a natural. Yet I have been instructed professionally and practiced my a@* off and am still not even on the same continent as these greats, or even probably most of you. I want to know what else is it. Genetic disposition? Parents who don't allow their kids do to anything but study and practice music so that it becomes all they know and devote to??? What??? I know how you become good, practice. But how do you get THAT Good??? Just a frustrated musician mainly frustrated by my own limitations.
