Hi All, I hope someone can help me with these two questions I have. Question #1: Does learning to read music help one groove even better? I am thinking that understanding how to count can help a bassist become even better with grooving. Yes, I know listening helps too...What do you all think? Question #2: Is there anyone hear on this forum who can hear a groove in there heads and go straight to notation and write exactly what they heard without playing there instrument. Ya know kind of like what Beethoven did and other great musicians. I guess ear training helps? I would love to be able to do that...Sometimes at work (I am a receptionist) I hear cool grooves in my head and I don't have my bass. So what usually happens is after work I go home to try and write the groove and I completly forgot how the the groove went Thanks for all your help Greekbassist!
