Hi all, So I went to the jam yesterday, as I do each and every week, and another bassist, the neighbour of one of the guitarists, turned up to play. And all I gotta say is DAMN. The guy was all over the place in a chop-heavy manner, yet tasteful as can be and so cleanly executed that whistles are covered with crud in comparison. Think Victor mixed with a bit of Jaco here. So needless to say, after the set, after my jaw was able to counter gravity once more, I asked this guy if he taught. He did, so hopefully soon I'll be able to learn from him. My concern is that his style is completely different from my current teacher's. This fellow is all about technique (doesn't know much theory and doesn't read, apparently) whereas my current teacher's approach is more theoretically grounded. I think that this is an opportunity to become a more well-rounded player, but I have also heard the opinion that it is better to stick with one teacher. What do you all think?
