Hey Mike, I've been looking for a good bass teacher in the south bay for some time now(I live in Lomita, right on the border of Harbor City, up the street from the projects). The last lesson lesson I took was from some guy over in Manhattan, who looked like he picked a bass maybe twice a week(if that) just to teach. I left disappointed; he really didn't look like a dedicated player. I was wonder if you taught bass, or if you didn't, maybe you could point me in the direction of a good teacher. Thanks.
