This question may have been asked before but I just wanted to get a better feel for some of your personal bass practice schedules/agendas/lesson-plans. For example, what do you do for the first ten minutes, the next ten minutes, the next half hour? How do you divide your one hour practice sessions? When do you "advance" yourself to the next stage so to speak? A teacher/instructor is a good start, but what if you were doing it alone, without the help of an instructor or teacher? (not all of us can afford it ya know! ) I have recently started to take my bass playing to another level in terms of technique and overall knowledge of the bass both inside and out. As I said, this may have been asked before, but I don't necessarily believe the philosophy that something can't be asked again because there will always be a new person (that was not around two or three years ago) who can offer better insight or something even better than the last time it was asked.
