    hi y'all,

    i'm new to the UB, after 20 years of playing up on the top end in mostly traditional american music (old time, blues, jazz). i've learned everything i know about music without formal instruction, but i need some help with this one. i'd like to get some technique down before my hands get shredded, and before i lock in to ways of thinking about the instrument that aren't keeping me open. i'm so taken by the bass that i'd mostly rather play it than take care of myself, and that strikes me as a pretty good indication that i need a teacher.

    any ideas in the san francisco bay area?

    Call the local musicans union they will give a list of people who teach Bass. That's how I found a list of bass teachers in Stockton CA.
