Ha! I'm busted, I only read tab.
I included the standard notation as a courtesy to you hot-shot Berklee types.
Thanks for being kind and gentle to a self-taught old guy who never took a bass lesson in his life.
You're correct, that's how the software output it.
I considered scoring it differently, but with all the accidentals, it seemed awkward any way I looked at it.
Does this look better, start in F and change keys 11 times?
Guitar Pro software will spit it out most any way you want, but does have an annoying default of sharping rather than flatting accidentals.
Mr. Bishop wrote it for piano, but appended some exercises for other instruments.
The trombone example continues on like that for 11 more iterations.
I'm lost as soon as it goes above middle C.
There's a page of bass exercises in the original book that I'll try to notate when I get a chance.
