Hi All, I've been learning for over a year now. Teaching myself using many of the online sites, such as TB and studybass.com Right now I'm using learning to read as a way to be able to play pieces and at the same time use it to test/train myself to be able to find notes faster on the fretboard.... is this valid? Does this work? or is there a better approach? My line of thought is learning to play simple stuff, such as from "BluesBass, The complete method" by Jon Leiberman, and then create my own lines from there. I've also just bought a drum machine. So when I get going with it I want to set up some rhythms and jam with that. I'm also working through Stuart Clayton's "Crash Course Bass" Does this seem sensible?
