Ive been playing 2.5 years now, I have a lot of spare time on my hands with living out of hotels through the week because of work, And I do like to dedicate 1 day over the weekend to having a jam with some of my friends... Recently found Studybass.com and pretty much printed the whole site and read through it all and I have to say it improved my playing no end after the initial "oh **** ive been playing 2 years and I didnt realise I sucked at keeping a steady beat" But after all that, ive learnt how to read music, some chords, 1 finger per fret, legato ect ect ect, basicly all the basics and put it to my already "comfortable" playing ability. But my dilemma is now that I dont know if I should take lessons? with practice of what I have already learnt im sure I could quite easyly be a compitant player, I have a lot of time to practice and i sit with a metronome for 10-15 mins a day, go up and down scales to learn finger placement ect. I dont have a grandure that ill ever play in a band good enough to be signed. Im just quite happy learning songs and jamming with a few friends. So is it worth taking lessons?????
