I've been playing electric 4 string bass about 5 months since converting from guitar. I've done the book/video thing ad nauseum by now. I play in a praise band and seem to be hanging in just fine. I've learned the fretboard completely, some basic patterns (major/miner chords), the root/3rd/fifth thing, worked scales, 12 bar blues, practiced arpeggios, string crossing etc.. I understand time signatures and key signatures from a life long ago as a violinist. I'm slowly but surely learning to sight read in bass clef and can already sight read treble clef. I've got some basic walking patterns down cold. So..the question is this. I have an opportunity to take a half hour weekly lesson from a pro at a good price. What is it exactly I should be looking to learn from him? I don't just want to rehash everything I've been sucking out of these books. Would it be a good route to have him focus on tips/tricks and my style/technique and just let me keep plugging the theory on my own? I'm pretty psyched about getting to take lessons, but have no idea what direction to go with them, which is I'm sure the first question he will ask me! Thanks for any advice. First lesson is Tuesday 11/26.
