Hi, y'all! This is my first post here, and here's the thing: I've been on-an-off playing bass for about 7 years now. It has never been anything really serious for me, but now I realized that I'd really like to learn to play GOOD, to KNOW what exactly I'm doing when I'm playing. I have basic idea of notes, some theory knowledge. BUT there's A LOT of holes in my knowledge (first thing I know I'd like to fix would be to learn to practice with a metronome). So I was wondering does anyone have any useful advice, links to lessons theory I MUST look at and learn? Any advice appreciated - where should I begin and what should I do to become a guy who's good enough to call himself 'a bass player'. P.S. I thought that I could elaborate - I've had interest in music for a long time. Got an opportunity to get a bass guitar, so I did. Began to play 'just for fun'. Over time I've been interested in different styles of music from thrash to funk, but lately I've found myself being more and more interested in playing this one particular kind of music - let's call it stoner rock mixed with 'grungy' post-rock. So I began to search through youtube, and began to listen to Kyuss, and man I'm LOVE! I realized I'd really like to learn more about stoner rock - scales used, common techniques etc. Maybe later I could find some other amateur guys in my area just to jam together on weekends. Anyhow, the main question remains - where should I begin to learn to play bass? Links to lessons appreciated. General advice welcome.
