So I'm starting to learn to read bass clef. I can read treble clef well (I'm a converted sax player), and I've been playing bass for 10 years, and I finally want to get into reading bass parts. I don't know bass clef well, and I don't know the notes on the neck very well. I've bought a progressive scale studies book, which covers all keys and octave, and is not necessarily designed for learning notes in any one position on the neck. It starts with scales in arpeggios in all keys, and then moves on to 2 octave scales, etc. My question is this: should I be appoaching the fretboard in sections, or tackle the neck as a whole? I feel like I'm trying to learn three things at once (bass clef, notes on the bass, position shifting). What are your thoughts, bass gurus?
