    I took a few months of lessons about 20 years ago. I was taught by a bluegrass musician. He taught me the different notes. No scales, or apregios but I did learn the fretboard and I played by ear. I played mostly bluegrass, gospel, country and I even tried rock. He just got me started and I kind of just taught my self. Back then I played about 4 years and now I have played the last 2 years and mostly at church. Since I now have the internet I have kind of teaching my self.

    I have decided to take lessons but were I live (east TN) it is very hard to find someone that is good. I am wanting to learn some Jazz and just improve. My first lesson is in a few days. He is a graduate from Cal-Berkeley. (I belive) But he does have a degree in music. I talked with him on the phone and he is going to teach me to train my ear. He said that he was going to order me a book Working Bass Tool Kit. Has anyone used this book or has done any ear training.
