Publisher's Summary

"Boy, do I have a lot to learn!" Anyone who's ever picked up a musical instrument of any kind - from the first caveman banging rocks to that little kid at the guitar shop - has thought that. I know I did. I'd been trying for years to break in to the music scene, to show everyone my chops, to make my mark. And I was good. But I wasn't great. I knew that there was something wrong.
"Then the teacher showed up. I didn't ask for him. I didn't think I needed him. And all he said he could teach me was 'nothing'.
"What happened next, you may not believe...I sure didn't...but that didn't stop him."
The Music Lesson is the inspiring story of a young bass player and the lessons he learns about Life, Music, and the Life of Music. Throughout this audiobook is new, original music written by Victor Wooten and a bonus performance by the original supergroup Bela Fleck and the Flecktones.

I really enjoyed this. This book offered me a different perspective on bass playing and introduced me to some new ways of playing. It also mentions many great bass players and great bass lines I hadn't heard before. I'd recommend this to any musician but obviously its best for bass players. The accompaniment music is tasteful and not distracting. The narration is clear. all in all a five star audiobook for me.

An amazing insight

A non music music lesson that doesn't teach you anything but allows you to discover what you look for.
If you are ready, the book is here for you to experience; just waiting, just like music is ready and waiting for you. Give yourself some time and space and allow the lesson to resonate and give your mind something to think about other than notes.
