Hi, I live in Maine and have been teaching myself bass for about 20 years. I know a limited amount of music theory, can't read music and will give almost anyone a blank look when they start listing off chords to me (most of the time). I can play though, I've put up lots of online collaborations with people overseas on soundcloud so given enough time, I *can* compose proper bass lines. Trouble is, I don't exactly understand why I pick the notes I do (besides it sounds right or it's in the same mode) and I certainly don't instinctively see all the notes I could choose from at any given time. My timing and groove are great (as far as I know). I'm 40 years old, disabled/retired military, meaning the actual funding to go to a college is already earned. Would I be someone who would even have a chance at passing an audition to attend Berklee or do I have too many holes in my basic knowledge? Mostly when I read what goes on at auditions I think to myself I don't know any of that stuff they're going to audition me for and it's a little confusing because that's what I want to go to school to learn in the first place. I would post examples of my playing but I don't want to appear like I'm looking for comments on my songs or anything like that.
