"Dave is awesome. He helped me get excited about the bass guitar. As a bass player, he's solid and funky, he knows his tunes, and he can quickly de-construct the theory of a song. He gave me exercises that actually strengthened my weak spots, but also totally made sure to understand my goals. He's very low-pressure, non-judgemental, and a very nice guy. The perfect teacher for me."
