: I started playing bass about 4 years ago, and I experienced that amazing catapult in playing..I was learning really quickly, and I've emerged as a good player, I guess..but my bass playing has sort of been standing still..I will learn things, but I can't find anything to challenge me or help me grow as a bassist..where the problem is I know I don't know soooo much about bass playing..I just can't seem to find anything though..
: can anyone give me any suggestions to help me grow as a player? Any websites, music I should listen to, bass players I should look at, and technique that need further assessment..any advice will be greatly appreciated..thank you.
:read a book called "Mastery" by george Leonard. He's an akido master who has great things to say about hte problems of plateaus in our development. Basically that if you're on a plateau and you hang, you'll make another leap forward. in other words, the plateau is the sign of future progress
