Okay so today I was looking at my bass method book which i have been stumbling through. I was once again not finding the groove and even though I was following the correct beats on my meternome it felt mechanical and awkward Until then It happend all of a sudden I just had that one particular section down completely. In my excitement I continued to play it again and again and again But then It went back to the same way once I moved on again to a new section of the piece of music. I am really trying to learn the right way. Before I bought my bass about 3 weeks ago I had done alot of research. Saved up and bought the right equitment, did ear training on the web, tried to learn how to read music. I practice as little as an hour a day but on my days off of work and college maybe 4 or 5 hours. I have an instructor that I have been to once but will go again in another week. What I am curious is how long did it take you to reach that synchronization with your bass that I have on just that one little lick. By the way I am not assuming it is the same for everyone, and I know for sure that nothing will replace practice and hard work, I just would like a reference point so I know if I am progressing at the right speed or If I am musically illiterate.
