Mike: I've been playing bass for almost 3 years now and I had lessons for about 6 months. My teatcher was great but I had to move town to study civil engineering. Now that I'm here I can't find a good teatcher or one that fits with my university classes. And the only school worth checking (Hot Clube in Lisbon) is pretty far from where I live. I learned the enough with the lessons to know how to read music...but that's about all I know about theory. I don't know where to turn now so I can improve my playing...that's why I'm writting you, hoping that you'll have a wise word to tell me... Thanks a bunch!
