It seems fair to ask this question as so many bass players trust sources of learning without ever wondering if what they are being taught actually improves one's playing. I have a few questions that I am curious about. 1. Schools sometime cost over $20,000 a semester, a very high figure to pay to learn how to play the bass or to learn musical content. Can you share how your playing improved to where spending 20 grand on music lessons was a wise investment on your part. 2. There are lots of sources where the bass is taught. If you have attended any bass clinics, on-line lessons, bass camps, private teachers or studying with tab or fingerboard harmony to improve your playing with, how has your playing improved. In general, do you know how to play better? If so, can you describe what is improved in your bass playing that was once a playing difficulty that you had before attending the various sources that teach you how to play better? Many thanks for your help.
