Gusy (and gals): I have played bass guitar for over 25 years mostly 4 string fretted). I am a decent player, and although my reading is somewhat rusty, I can read a chart and real books. I am returning to jazz for the first time since college, and am thinking of getting an EUB. Obviously I am going to need some lessons to deal with the longer scale and such. Other than "it depends", how long will lessons be advisable to get me in a position where I can explore and improve on my own? I am not looking to be a pro, just play with some other musicians and get where I can get some gigs and enjoy myself. Thanks.
