    Even though I've been playing for a while, I'm always interested in learning from more experienced players. Does anyone know of a good instructor in the Charlotte, NC area? I mainly play funk, R&B, and Gospel.

    John Shaughnessy teaches over at Music Go Round in Winsdor Square Shopping Center a few nights a week. 17 bucks for a half hour lesson. He's very good and got me going in the right direction after correcting all of my self learned bad habits. He has a degree in Music Performance, and is a working bassist. The number for Music Go Round is 704-814-0981. I just opened a slot for 6PM Tuesday nights since my job has gone totally crazy. He has background in all areas you mentioned including gospel and produces his own slap bass CD/Book instructional program.

    Here's his website: http://www.js3jazz.com/

    Tell him the old guy Joe sent you.
