Learning to Read
I recently realized that I really want/need to start reading. In your other replies to people asking how to read, you list three things that need to be learned:
1. The notes of the bass
2. The notes on the staff
3. Reading/interpreting/calculating/memorizing rhythms
I just watched your video where you play all 100 notes in 45 seconds, and for the past hour I've been playing all the Gs on my bass over and over trying to memorize them.
My question is, armed with the knowledge that I need to master those 3 things, how should I go about doing them? Can you suggest any specific excercises?
Also, I currently don't have a ton of time to play as I am traveling/volunteering, so if there are any good written/mental excercises you know, I would love to hear about those too.
