Teacher In Southern California From Talk Bass?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Son of Spam, Nov 4, 2001.


  1. Hmmmm...

    I've been looking for a good teacher right now....I'm at the point where I'm too lazy to learn theory on my own.

    I have no problem with practicing the stuff, and putting it into use, I just HATE learning it by myself. It's soooo boring that way.

    Anywayz, I can't find a good teacher in my small city of Moreno Valley...

    I know there are a few Bass players from TB in Southern California...

    Any of em interested in teacher/know someone good that can teach? If so could u either post here or PM me?

    I've searched internet sites, music shops, my school....basically everything is empty or terrible... guitar teachers who think they can cut bass playing because they know the notes... bass players that think walking basslines is complex bass playing and a bassplayers rightful place is roots.

    I've seen it all except good, qualified, teachers.

    So help please?

    Bump. Hate to see a sincere request for help get buried.
     
  3. Thanks for the bump.

    I'll eventually get a response I presume.

    Hopefully...lol.

    I was going to suggest talking to Long Ly over at LABX, but Moreno Valley is a bit remote. Your best bet is probably going to be trying to find somebody over in Riverside or San Berdoo. Temecula, perhaps. Sorry I can't be more help.

    Or perhaps check out your local community college. YOu may be able to get good and inexpensive training there. Also, you could explore new styles. Good luck.
     
  6. I'm thinking about trying the local community college thing.

    But yea Munji, I've looked in Riverside.....I'm willing to go into Orange County... hell, even L.A. for a good teacher (but it better be a damn good one...hehehe)
