[QUOTE="Sotakoira Musti, post: 9031992, member: 145564] So, the big question is, can my teatcher make me unlearn (forget) everything I've learned or not learned in these past 29 years. Okay, I've maybe exaggerated a bit, I'm not that bad player, but you get the big picture. I asked my teacher to teach me improvising, using the whole neck. It'll cost a 200€/month, but I can go to as many lessons as I like. While I'm waiting for my knee surgery (artificial joint), I've got all the time in the world to go to lessons. I truly hope they'll help me to become a better and most importantly, a more creative player. Wish the old bonehead luck guys and gals! Br, Musti[/QUOTE] I think the Question is Can You PAY ATTENTION? He won't 'Teach' you anything. It is up to You to Learn. As far as improv goes, start simple. Sing the notes. Copy what you sing. When you can play what you sing, you will get there a lot faster. Best of luck, I really hope it goes well for you.
