": Man, don't be too harsh on a cat just cause he says he doesn't feel he has anything to teach. He should know, right? It's a different situation going to a clinic or gig and picking up some tips from a cat, but studying with somebody is certainly more of a commitment and that person should have a pretty well thought out pedagogy, as well as big enough ears to help you where you need it most. Where are you located? If you are anywhere near NYC I HIGHLY recommend my teacher, Joe Solomon. There is an article at talkbass.com under GUEST ARTICLES (DOING IT THE SLOW WAY) you might want to check out. And chill..."
Woah, man... you misunderstood me. I'm not "pissed" at any ONE player for refusing to give me lessons. I'm just discouraged at the outcome of my recent quest for a local bassist who is willing to give me lessons. They all (so far) have told me I basically know everything THEY know, which I know is very rarely true with any musician who's been gigging for years... there's SOMEthing that can be taught. I can even understand why they may feel uncomfortable. Again, my frustration is directed at the situation, not the musicians. I'm in Mobile, by the way and thanks for a great web link. Jam ON -
