Any of you electric only players ever take lesson from a double bass only player? I am about to start lessons with someone that doesn't, I think, play any electric at all anymore (though has a music degree with a focus on electric bass). This person is a well respected, local Jazz upright player and teacher, though, and for whatever reason, is willing to work with me. I am a self taught (never took any lessons) rock, funk, blues, etc. guy. Have been gigging a bunch for the last couple years, and am fairly comfortable and confident in those settings. The way I see it, if I am gonna take lessons, I need to focus more on where I am weak, than on the things I already do well. So, I am hoping this person will be able to build up my theory chops, chart reading, etc. and hopefully get me to the point where I can be comfortable in most Jazz settings. I am also doing this with the hope that it will help me with the current stuff I play. Because of their prior experience with electric bass, this teacher is confident in the ability to correct any kind of mechanics or technique issues I may have, just not (in their words) "gonna be able to elegantly demonstrate certain things on the electric." I was talking to a "rocker" friend that thought I was nuts, and put some doubts in my head about going this way. What do you guys think?? Does this seem like a good idea?
