Hello to everyone, To begin with, I'm a self-taught bass player playing for a couple of years now, having a pretty good evolution as a potential musician. I am a (very) quick learner, as I learned various techniques and can learn songs pretty fast; even more, my muscle memory doesn't need much to "remember". My motivation can make me practice up to 10 hours/day. So, a promising start. What is my problem ? I simply don't know what to do next. I don't know much musical theory at all, I don't know how should I compose a song from scratch, even though I consider myself a creative person. Even more, I don't know what I don't know !? Does this mean that I should play only technical material, such as an endless array of scales and arpeggios? I honestly don't think so. That's why I posted here, I'm pretty sure that most of the musicians have hit this common plateau. Any feedback is much appreciated. Thank you. I'm really sorry, as I think this has been asked before, but I think a conversation with me would be more useful.
