There are some good pointers in this book, but they are hidden inside a lame story. At about half way through I found myself skipping the fluff and sorting out what I thought was useful. ( )

Eric Bibb mentioned that he was reading this book during his recent concert in Sebastopol, CA so I had to check it out. The narrative is pretty silly, but the music lessons are useful (if I were the sort to use such a word, I would say, inspiring). ( )

all wrong.
But if so,

Truth? What is truth?...And by the way, if I always tell you the truth, you might start to believe me.

I believe that Music, herself, had something to do with you holding this book.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425220931, Paperback)

From Grammy-winning musical icon and legendary bassist Victor L. Wooten comes The Music Lesson, the story of a struggling young musician who wanted music to be his life, and who wanted his life to be great. Then, from nowhere it seemed, a teacher arrived. Part musical genius, part philosopher, part eccentric wise man, the teacher would guide the young musician on a spiritual journey, and teach him that the gifts we get from music mirror those from life, and every movement, phrase, and chord has its own meaning...All you have to do is find the song inside.

Listen to "The Lesson" from Victor Wooten's, Palmystery, here.
