I've been learning bass guitar (taking lessons) for about two years. My teacher is pretty good in most ways - good academic qualifications, fairly successful jazz bass player (regular gigs and a few CDs), nice guy. However, one thing makes we wonder if I should try another teacher - he doesn't actually play bass guitar these days! He does play acoustic upright bass and also acoustic and semi-acoustic guitar. However, he doesn't presently own or regularly play bass guitar. Now, if he picks up my bass he can certainly play what he's telling me to play. I was just wondering if I took lessons from a "bass guitar specialist" I might learn some stuff I can't learn from this guy. Or do folks reckon I should maybe just stick with my current teacher who is a good musician and someone I get on with OK? Thanks.
