RC, I with your point about studying theory and basic lines, and especially rythm. I'm a ex-guitar player but I feel I'm getting passed that and into the groove some.

But I'm beginning to wonder if my right hand technique is proper, or if it will come back to bite me some day. And suggestions for literature or better yet, something online?

: I have been playing for 25 years. I've played on several national and international releases. I'm trying to share my experience with a group of younger players and I'm merely sugesting that a value system that places speed so highly is a trait of an immature player. Speed comes naturally with getting the music in your head and hands and growing as a musician first. Scott Lafaro played with two fingers, as did Jaco. Relax, study music, look inside.
