  1. what are the pros and cons of being self taught and what are some pros and cons for taking lessons
  2. I guess the moderators might be tired of doing this.

    Since you know this is in the General Instruction Thread, you should figure out that there 4 sticky threads on the GI thread, as you can see, in the first four threads:

    Then you should check all those out first, because those are what posters should read first, then u will come across this:

    Which will then have a thread named "Lessons vs Self-Taught", here:

    Continue posting there... cheers.
  4. just cuz im a noob doesnt mean u gotta bash me

    So, I saw this guy at the golf range, reading the book "Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf". He had the book with him. He was looking at the book and then standing there and hitting a ball. This is one of the best golf books ever. And he was not standing the way the book clearly showed to stand. And he was not holding the club the way the book clearly showed to hold. And he was not swinging the club on the path the book clearly showed to swing.

    Cause his eyes are not were mine are in position and years.

    Objective. A little bit goes a long way.

    I am guessing this is self taught behaviour. :p

    Seems silly to think so highly of your skills to never take lessons.

    I could reach and say that any time you listen to music the bassist you're listening to is "teaching" you their style and what they've learned from others.

    A Mod in the making right there! The last link is the kicker, but the other links will help you as well.

    bassoptimus, kiwlm was not bashing you, just trying to point you in the right direction. There is already a thread about your topic, so thread closed.
