Hey everyone, it's been a while since I've posted on TB but I just had a question about where I am at musically (I would normally ask my teacher but he only rarely gets double bass students... Most are guitar and bass guitar both of which I also take lessons with him on.). I have completed Essential Elements 2000 book one and almost 3/4 (maybe 3/5?) of the way finished with book two. Does anyone have any experience with these books? Would I be considered a mid-beginner? A low-intermediate or a high-beginner? Also, are there any evaluation programs? I hear about people in the UK (and some other European countries) that take these exams for their instruments, is there an equivalent in the US? Thanks for all who can help.
