    Whilst I agree with Amadeus RE Dave Pomeroy I suggest that you get in touch with him via Talkbass PM or E-mail. If he cannot give you lessons himself he might be able to recommend a teacher.

    His TB name is DP/earwave and heres a thread so you can PM him.

    Nashville must be plastered with people who get by with teaching while trying to break into the studio and live scene.

    Just check the local music stores, etc.

    actually no...


    i would try world music in bellevue. the have a really nice "music school" and just happens to be spitting distance from my office.:bassist: and try corner music as well. if for one reason only is J.D. is a bass guru and is one of the nicest guys on the planet.

    Thank you all of you for all of your suggestions. Here is the thing. When I say I need lessons, I mean, everything. I am brand spanking new in the bass world, and well, I was wondering if these people would accept a "brand" new bass player. Take the time to show me how to hold my bass, how to, read music, I know a little, however, I have never worked with the bass clef. So, my question is, if I call one of these people up, would they sit there and laugh their @sses off at me?

    I third the notion to contact reggie(or regi or however he spells his name) wooten....even if you can't get lessons directly from him I'm sure he knows all the best qualified bassists in the the area that you COULD get lessons from. Ask around at local music stores, ask guitarists(or any musician at that) if the bassist in their band can show you a thing or two. Goto as many shows if you can and talk to the bassist afterwards. The great thing about {most all}bassists, we are very willing to help, and very humble, bassists know whats up, and are always ready to help a fellow bassist.

    I've never been to nashville, but I hear its got a pretty happening music scene, I'm sure you'll find someone.
