First off, this is not meant to be a competition or anything, I'm just trying to get a feel for where I'm at and I can assure you there are many people who will be much better than I at this. While working on my reading and better instrument note recognition I've been just taking heads to jazz tunes and trying to play them on bass. Nothing pioneering in concept, but it is a good way for me to learn. I kinda do the Berlin thing (work on the notes first, worry about time later). My current conquest is Freedom Jazz Dance. I'm a long way from 165bpm but have been getting better every day. I've devoted bits of time over the last 4 days to work on it. Can very many people just sit down with a sheet like this and just play it after a few minutes? Should I be focused on something perhaps easier?
