I just called up my teacher to start taking lessons again. I mentioned to him I had just bought STANDING IN THE SHADOWS... the James Jamerson book. And he was like, "Who's he?" Okay, before you tell me not to take lessons from him....let me tell you he is a musician. Not a bassist. In fact, he never plays bass on a gig. He's a guitarist first. But he seems to plays bass very well, but he also plays guitar and many other instruments. That is why I go to him so I can switch back and forth from guitar to bass. He spent three years studying at Berkeley and is a music teacher in a school. But isn't that something? He's been giving lessons for 30 years and never heard of James Jamerson.
