I had my bass on E-bay but it didn't sell so now I guess it's a sign that I need to learn how to play it. Are there any cheep or preferably free sites that will teach me how to play? I guess you need a little back ground. I got my bass a year and a half ago, took lessons for about two months, played and practiced regularly for about a month after that. I was just getting to the point of being able to hear the bass in the music I listened to and a few times was able to repeat what I heard on my bass but not often. After I stopped taking the lessons I kinda got stuck in a rut and wasn't learning anything new. I tried printing some tab but everything I downloaded was just way too hard. About two months ago I picked it back up and was using the book that my instructor had me buy when I was taking the lessons and went through it and worked on some of the stuff in there but i only stuck with it for a few weeks since it was just "mary had a little lamb" and not the good version. My taste in music is pretty broad, I listen to everything from Slayer to Emenim to Garth Brooks to .... As far as my taste in bass I would have to say Anesthesia by Cliff Burton is the reason I first wanted to learn to play. Next I would have to say is Rose Royce's "Car Wash," I just love that funky stuff. I put my bass up on E-bay last week and ever since I have been wanting to play it, plus now I have found this site so I have some accountability to keep practicing. So where do I start. Lessons aren't an option till sell some more houses I just don't have the money now. Plus I need to find a different instructor, I just didn't care for what the other one was teaching.
