Alright, i just got my geddy lee and now im at the dillema of how to go about actually learning to play. I'm interested in playing fingerstyle and slap bass and am wondering if i should take lessons and learn to read music and such, or if i should just self teach and learn to play by ear. I was watching some videos and billy sheehan says that he doesn't really know all of the music theory to bass, but then i watch victor wooten, whos plays the style im more interested in, and it seems to me that he knows the bass and music theory inside out. Also, what are some players who play mostly by ear? And it seems to me that going to lessons would be the fastest way to learn, and then knowing that stuff will make it easier for me to teach myself suff later, am i right in thinking that? I'm not really sure how to go about teaching myself, so im kinda leaning towards lessons right now. Sorry for making you read all this, dont know if it makes sense, but thanks for any help.
