So I've decided that for Father's day, I'm going to start giving my dad bass lessons (cop out present? you betchya. But I'm a poor college kid). My dad's in his early 50s and into classic rock. His favorite artists are pretty diverse: The Rolling Stones, Cream/Eric Clapton, Yes, Mountain, The Doors, Fleetwood Mac (all forms), and ELO. The guy's got a massive CD collection (which pales in comparison to his old record collection). We're talking easily 1000 albums. Funny thing is he's never played an instrument (he tried guitar as a kid, but his parents made him play "old-timer" country and 40s pop) but we all joke that he probably can learn through osmosis. What are some suggestions for a few lessons? I think I'm going to approach it like I would with my other students at first by teaching him scales and the 12-bar blues patterns first, but he doesn't have the time to sit and practice like I did or like my other students do. What are some good ways to get him playing songs he likes (hopefully avoiding TAB along the way) and maybe even jamming with some other people?
