    Hey all--
    Anyone know a good instructor inbetween the SF Bay Area and Sac? I am an adult that returned to the instrument after a long layoff.

    I took 5 years of lessons many years ago (20+) and want to have more directed study than the flailing I seem to do currently. I learned good technique from the start so I am not so focused on that.

    I want to learn to bridge from the all the theory that I learned to putting it into practical use. I play some roots rock in a worship band setting but would like to expand into playing blues and jazz.

    I would probably be willing to drive as far as Berkeley in the bay area and up to Davis in the Sac area. I am located exactly right in the middle of both areas.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    There is some guy named Kai who lives in Oakland who I hear is pretty good.....

    Kai Eckhardt : bassist / composer

    Seriously, there are a hundred guys in the bay area that are world class players you could take lessons from. Ever use google?

    Thanks for the suggestion. I guess I should clarify. I am looking for someone in between the Bay Area and Sac.

    I am trying to find someone closer to home versus doing a lot of driving to a lesson. With work and kids/family just trying to get off on the right foot. Having an instructor closer to home would work best.

    Also looking for recommendations/suggestions from folks about what they like in a particular instructor, etc.

    Merry Christmas.
