    I actually see quite a few Northern VA folks on here--pretty cool. But which one of you solely teaches bass and can assist me reaching a new level. I am not theory trained.

    I could use a real teacher who provides me with lesson plans that are proven to work for those with enthusiasm about keeping the lowdown going.

    I notice I have troubles during improv jam moments, where I lose my timing or I lose the guitar---this could be for various reasons--but I just want a better understanding of what sounds good with what.

    Thanks

    Hi my name is Markus Huber,
    I live in Fairfax. I teach E. bass. but unfortunately Im moving out of state by next year. I can recommend someone who is a really good bass teacher. (he was my teacher for 2 years)
    I can give you his email address if you want. He has a home studio in route 1 somewhere in alexandria near ft belvoir.

    Ft. Belvior might me a distance...not sure. I live in Winchester, work in Loudoun County.


    I would consider driving it though if he was a good fit. Ask him if he has room...and thank you so much.

    If you can, get a hold of Scott Harlan. He is a fantastic musician and an excellent instructor. He has a great web site with his contact information.
    I studied with him for about a year before I was required to move to Texas. Highly recommended!

    I was just about to make the same recommendation! Scott is a fantastic player, brilliant guy, and great person. I have known him for years, lost touch with him a bit recently, but he's a truly gifted teacher.

    His CD's are pretty damned amazing too, highly recommended as well!

    I wonder if I met Scott Harlan at an open mic. If it was the same guy, he was booked.
