Ok this sounds so lame but I need lessons and since I am temporarily out of work I cant justify spending money on them until I get a job again. The problem is my three-piece cover band has somehow managed to get a gig, much to my surprise they are paying us, go figure, which may lead to more gigs. In an effort to improve I feel I need to take some lessons, I have 0 theory knowledge, not even sure what that means and more or less play by ear. I do know what notes are on which string and how to find them, working on not having to think about that, but thats about all I know. Here is the deal; I can do Plumbing, light construction and computer repair, I also have a working knowledge of car mechanics, if its a Nissan 6 cylinder I know quite a bit, if its an 84-89 Nissan 300ZX I can take it apart and rebuild it. I am willing to trade any combination of these for bass lessons. I live in Miami, Florida and am willing to drive anywhere in Dade or Broward (ok Broward is a bit far for any large project, would prefer Dade) and am fairly flexible in hours. I know that one lesson at a time without follow up is probably not a good idea but it is better then nothing. Email or PM me firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for any help Ok I am Bumping this and adding some stuff since I seem to have a lot of Views on the thread but no PMs or offers. I think people are intimidated by the word "lessons". I realy don't know diddly about playing so if your even semicompetent at bass and need some advice or simple repairs in any of the fields I mentioned shoot me a PM or email and we can work something out. I only know one bass player in town who really knows anything and he is very hard to hook up with so just sitting around and noodeling is helpful. Plus meeting other bass players is always fun.
