Belated thank you, bassybill! It was definitely a step in the right direction and got me closer than I was.
My problem is that I'm a very visual learner, and I would have a much easier time learning the articulation nuances and syncopated fills if I had the note-for-note sheet music. I guess what I should be asking is, does anyone have the 2009 Bass Player mag and would want to help a brother out by scanning a pdf and PMing me???
