Last Lesson: Back to my own learning

No. This isnt my guitar teacher, but they go to the same barber. :-)

The last night of class was much like last week. Mike leads the band. This week I instructed the class on how to do alternative bass picking ( no that isnt illegal in Minnesota) . The teacher asked me to play some of the stuff that I have been practicing...and I just was fooling around with fingerpicking and stumbled onto different ways of fooling around with the bass strings. Nothing too profound, but enough for him to turn the class over to me. ( EGO inflation pt 78)

I think for now I will keep the "mike teaches guitar his way" dvd off the market for a while. I will keep instructing myself until I feel I have hit a wall and then find a real teacher at that time.

Still enjoyed the class, just reaffirmed that I am on the right path with my learning.

Rock on Dudes! :-)
