Is it Wednesday again already? I've been sick the last few days and I need to get stuff done this week, but I'm basically useless.

I also gave my first bass lesson this last week, which was actually a lot of fun. I'm gonna try to pick up another student or two and see how it goes. I'm thinking this is something I'll actually want to do more of though.

Fantastic! Spread the gospel of the EADG!

I took "lessons" from Juano of Sky Cries Mary. I was already an accomplished bass player at the time, and my "lessons" were just us jamming together for an hour or two, and riffing off each other and the loop/drum tracks he had programmed.

It really stretched my skills, and got me playing outside of my rut. Rejuvenated my playing.

So sometimes, it's not about teaching a player new skills... sometimes it is being a sounding board that throws new ideas into the mix, too.

Good to hear. I’ve been thinking about getting lessons myself for the same reason, just get a different perspective.
