So I was at the Wooten's show again last night and talked to the guy who is playing bass for them. His name is John Billings and he was the bassist for the Donna Summers's band. Anyway, I talked to him about taking some lessons and he said that the lessons are $40 an hour. This guy is an amazing bassist; I put him right up there with Vic as far as slap and funk goes. Do you guys think that $40 an hour is a good investment? That seems like a lot to me. I know everyone is going to say that it all depends on how much I value playing and learning bass. I know that's up to me. What I want to know is if you can really get $40 worth of learning into an hour. A few years ago I took guitar lessons that were about $25 an hour and that seemed fair because the guy is great. I just was wondering if $40 is about standard or if everyone thinks that's too much. Thanks for the input.
